The Repercussions of Rejecting Reasonableness

Masua Sagiv, Neri Zilber
Dr. Masua Sagiv is Scholar in Residence of the Shalom Hartman Institute based in the San Francisco Bay Area and the Koret Visiting Assistant Professor of Jewish and Israel Studies at U.C. Berkeley. Masua’s scholarly work focuses on the development of contemporary Judaism in Israel, as a culture, religion, nationality, and as part of Israel’s identity as a Jewish and democratic state. Her research explores the role of law, state actors and civil society organizations

Neri Zilber

On this Israel Policy Briefing, Neri Zilber, host of  the Israel Policy Forum’s Israel Policy Pod, and Masua Sagiv unpacked the repercussions of the law barring the Supreme Court from using the reasonableness standard to review government decisions and appointments. They discussed what this development means for the judicial overhaul and the pro-democracy protest movement, its implications for the various players in Israeli politics, its impact on Israel’s security and relations with the U.S., and how it will affect Israeli democracy.

You care about Israel, peoplehood, and vibrant, ethical Jewish communities. We do too.
