Highlights from HaaretzQ with NIF

15 December 2015

We had more than 1,000 attendees, and hundreds more that had to be turned away from the door. We heard from an incredible roster of speakers including no less than President Barack Obama and President Reuven (Rubi) Rivlin.

The packed house is a testament to the strength of the community committed to a vision of a more equal and more democratic Israel.
