After a dramatic session in the Knesset plenum and amid escalating social unrest, the Knesset has passed the bill to block the court’s use of the reasonableness standard in reviewing government decisions and appointments. This is the first official element of the government’s so-called judicial reform package to become law, which the coalition unilaterally advanced despite unprecedented opposition from across Israeli society, including the security establishment, economists, and legal experts.

Join the Israel Policy Forum for a briefing with Neri Zilber (Israel Policy Forum) and Masua Sagiv (Shalom Hartman Institute, U.C. Berkeley) to unpack the repercussions of this law’s passage. They will discuss 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.
