Why is the Israeli government surrendering to the ultraorthodox minority? Will the IDF surrender to rabbinical pressure to segregate the military? How do power relations in Netanyahu’s government determine these religious and civil rights issues? What is the long political game? And how can Progressive Americans and Israelis join forces and fight together?

Partners for Progressive Israel and the Alliance for Israel’s Future invite you to join us for a dynamic conversation with Rabbi Noa Sattath, Dr. Avner Inbar and Avishay Ben Sasson Gordis
When: Monday, August 14 at 2.00pm EST.
The talk will be followed by Q&A.
