The Future of Pluralism and Democracy in Israel
Friday, October 12, 6:00 pm
Mickey Gitzin, the New Israel Fund (NIF) Director in Israel, will provide an update on the status of Reform Judaism and the shrinking democratic space in Israel. Gitzin will speak briefly at Shabbat services and more extensively after dinner with time for questions and answers by attendees. Gitzin has visited with TBE Voices in the past and his knowledge of current issues and NIF's work are a valuable context for all we read and hear about in the media. TBE Voices appreciates NIF's collaboration in bringing Mickey Gitzin back to TBE.
