Israel’s Debate: The Judiciary, Law of Return, and Democracy
Hosted By: Maven
Former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has returned to power as head of a new coalition government that has proposed a variety of legal reforms, including limitations on the autonomy of the Supreme Court, restrictions on the Law of Return, and curtailments on the rights of women and the LGBTQ+ community. These proposed changes have incited unprecedented demonstrations across Israel, as well as a large debate about the future of its democracy.
Join a conversation that aims to explore the current state and future of democracy in Israel. AJU’s President Dr. Jeffrey Herbst will be in discussion with judicial expert Joel D. Joseph about the critical issues being debated in Israel and among Jews everywhere.
