Join former Israeli consul general to New England and current J Street Israel executive director Nadav Tamir and New Israel Fund VP for public engagement Libby Lenkinski to reaffirm our community’s support for an inclusive democracy in Israel, acknowledge the current and historical challenges to that future, and explore what we in the American Jewish community can do to support that vision. We will hear from Israelis working to promote justice and democracy for all and American political leaders working to ensure U.S. diplomacy supports the same goals.
