Preserving Israel’s Character as a “Jewish and Democratic” State: Urgent Legal and Religious Challenges

A conversation with between American rabbi and former Ambassador David Saperstein and Israeli rabbi and attorney Uri Regev, the president of Hiddush: Freedom of Religion and Equality in Israel, has dedicated his entire career to the furthering of civil and religious rights.

Ambassador David Saperstein was the director and chief legal counsel at the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism for 30 years, prior to being appointed US Ambassador-at-large for International Religious Freedom by President Barack Hussein Obama in 2015.

The two discussants will focus on the Nation-State Law, the recognition of conversions done outside the aegis of the Israeli Chief Rabbinate and Woman of the Wall, among others.
