JStreet: A View From Israel

April 6, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

Israelis are heading into their fourth election in two years, and a lot is at stake for the country’s future. Many are asking whether this round will be different and whether it will bring an end to the country’s political deadlock.

As American Jews who care deeply about issues of religious freedom and equality, we are also eager to know what this new political landscape will mean for the struggle for pluralism in Israel. The past year has also seen increased friction between religious and secular communities in Israel over disparities in Covid-19 restrictions. How have these simmering tensions affected the politics around issues relating to religious freedom?

Furthermore, as the new Presidential administration settles in on Capitol Hill, what lasting impacts did the Trump administration policy have on the region, and how is the US-Israel relationship shifting under President Biden?

Join us for a fascinating conversation on these topics from an Israeli perspective. Anat Hoffman and Yochi Rappeport will provide an update on the ongoing battle to achieve equality at the Kotel, the recent Supreme Court decision on non-Orthodox conversions, and other developments in the struggle to build a more pluralistic Israeli society. Nadav Tamir will offer an analysis of the Israeli election results and what the current politics in Israel and the US means for the relationship between these two countries. You’ll also have an opportunity to hear more about J Street’s upcoming virtual National Conference, April 18-19, which will bring together the top policymakers, opinion leaders, and changemakers working on these issues.
