Lunch & Learn Webinar: Threats and Challenges to Israel’s Democracy

Presented by none other than Anat Hoffman of IRAC
Presented by Solel and the Israel Religious Action Center (IRAC). Solel is proud to welcome prominent social action activist Anat Hofman via Zoom to present this informative webinar.
In recent years, authoritarian regimes have been gaining strength around the world, mostly following financial and social crises. Although Israel has managed to keep its democracy intact, we must remain aware and be vocal about its violations. Attacks on the courts, especially Israel’s Supreme Court, have increased. There are also more and more attacks – from the highest government offices – against Israeli journalists and even against the Attorney General’s office, and other safeguards of democracy.
During this webinar, we will scrutinize the different threats and challenges to Israel’s democracy. One of them, the Supreme Court Override Bill, could remove all power from the Supreme Court. While the Knesset is not fully functional, this can open a Pandora’s Box for extremist behaviours and indoctrination. It’s important to understand where seemingly harmless actions can lead and what we can do about them.
