Exploring Religious Diversity in Israel 3 –Government & Religious Freedom



There are many ways to create positive change in this field. We will begin with retired Supreme Court Judge Elyakim Rubenstein on the role the Supreme Court plays in ensuring religious diversity and freedom in Israel. From there, we will travel down the street to the Knesset to meet with the Minister of Tourism Chili Truper and see how he has advanced options for programming on Shabbat. We will also hear from three Members of Knesset who are using their parliamentary power to advance issues of religious pluralism in the Knesset. And lastly, we will see how Russian speaking Jews are changing the face of Israel through grassroots programming to assert their unique form of Jewishness.
