The New Jewish State Law and Israel’s Future

Jan 31, 2019

A distinguished panel of analysts — Peter Beinart, Einat Wilf, Eugene Kontorovich, Sayed Kashua, and Rabbi Peter J. Rubinstein — explore the New Jewish State Law and its implications for Israeli democracy.

In passionate, thoughtful, intelligent discussion, they explore the complex issues of reconciling Israel as the state for Jewish people along with ensuring complete equality of social and political rights to all its inhabitants, regardless of religion, race, or sex. Global perceptions, as well as Jewish identity, the state-sanctioned Orthodox Rabbinate, and more, are addressed. This challenging discussion aims to bring greater understanding and insight into these most pressing questions about the future of Israel and the Jewish people.

This event is endowed by Francine and Abdallah Simon z”l, with support from Jamil Simon.
