As Israel celebrates 70 years of independence, we have many reasons to rejoice and take pride—most of all, in the strength of Israel’s democracy. But, as we are witnessing every day in our own country, Israelis cannot take democracy for granted. For years, Israelis have been confronting the erosion of democratic values by right-wing governments. Join us for this evening of learning and discussion with NIF CEO, Daniel Sokatch. Daniel will share insights from both sides of the ocean, as our communities grapple with fundamental questions such as:
-How can Israelis and Americans confront ultra-nationalists wishing to remake our countries in their anti- democratic image?
-What roles does civil society play in protecting our democratic institutions?
