Religion and Democracy in Israel: What are the Stakes for Global Jewry?

Donniel Hartman and David Koffman discuss how Israel navigates dual and sometimes competing commitments.

As a Jewish and democratic state, Israel celebrates both values and continuously navigates the tensions between them. The Canadian Jewish community watches the complexity of the Zionist project with curiosity and commitment.

Donniel Hartman and David Koffman, J. Richard Shiff Chair for the Study of Canadian Jewry at York University, discuss pluralism and democracy in Israel, why this matters to Jews outside of Israel, and what role we can play in the conversation.

The Shalom Hartman Institute was honoured to partner with Holy Blossom Temple and the Israel and Golda Koschitzky Centre for Jewish Studies at York University for this event.
