Jewish and Democratic: Threats and Challenges to Israel’s Democracy

Hosted By: Congregation Kol Ami

Rabbi Noa Sattath, Director of the Israel Religious Action Center, the social justice arm of the Reform movement in Israel, will give a talk live from Jerusalem, about the different threats and challenges to Israel’s democracy. In recent years, authoritarian regimes have been gaining strength worldwide, mostly following financial and social crises. Although Israel has managed to keep its democracy intact, we must remain aware and be vocal about its violations.
