Since its inception, the State of Israel has been clear in its intention to be both Jewish and democratic. But there are ongoing tensions in that twin commitment. Can the tension between Jewish and democratic be resolved? Three experts, including former US Ambassador to Israel Daniel Charles Kurtzer (2001-2005), will discuss this topic at the Leventhal-Sidman Jewish Community Center in Newton on Wednesday, December 12 at 7:30pm.
Kurtzer will be joined by Hebrew University Israeli law professor Ruth Gavison and Harvard Law School international law professor Noah Feldman. Moderating the discussion will be Leonard Fein, essayist and founding editor of Moment Magazine.
The program is part of the Ryna Greenbaum JCC Center for the Arts Hot Buttons, Cool Conversations discussion series. Tickets are $18. Interfaith families/individuals welcome. Purchase tickets at www.bostonjcc.org/artsevents or contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-965-5226.
