Over the past months, American Jews have mobilized against policies that strike at the heart of American, Jewish, and democratic values. For Naomi Chazan and many other Israeli leaders, this is not new. For years, they have confronted the erosion of democratic values and the rise of right-wing nationalism in Israel. Recent trends demonstrate important similarities in the struggles for equality and democracy in both countries.
What does the struggle to uphold Israel’s democracy look like at this moment? What are its implications for Jewish life in the US? Join us for a special evening with Professor Naomi Chazan – life-long champion of democracy, professor of political science, NIF board member, and former Deputy Speaker of the Knesset – who will shed light on developments in Israel and the US and their implications for both countries.
