Social Justice in Israel: Beyond the Headlines
Sunday, January 9 @12:00pm-1:30pm
Join us as we dive into Israeli society beyond the headlines and the news bites. What are some of the key domestic issues of social justice that Israelis care about and are working to address every day? How are Israel’s challenges similar to and different from the issues that many of us are working on in America today, and what can Israeli and American Jews gain by working together on shared goals of social justice and tikkun olam?
