Changing Tides: An Inside Look at Pluralism in Israel
A new coalition for pluralism, including Israelis of all Jewish backgrounds, is actively changing Israeli society for the better. Behind the headlines about religious extremism and coercion, these Israelis are rethinking the relationship between religion and state and creating new realities in Jewish life in Israel. They are challenging the ultra-Orthodox rabbinate to secure freedom of choice in marriage, opposing racism and efforts to remove women from the public sphere, and creating new expression of Jewish life.
Jimmy Taber, the Director of NIF New Generations will give an overview of these issues and the work on the ground advancing religious pluralism. Come hear how Israelis are successfully working together to promote tolerance, inclusion, and respect for diversity.
