Working Together: The Israel Religious Action Centre (IRAC) and the New Israeli Government 

May 3, 2021 at 1:00 p.m. EDT

Rabbi Sattath and Rabbi Dolgin explored several aspects of the new government and the Knesset, how they shape IRAC's strategies, communication, and actions.

They focussed on:

· The old and new faces in the Knesset, as well as their histories and commitments;

· The threats and opportunities that it poses for Israel's democracy;

· The new government and how it will impact democracy and liberal Jewish movements in Israel, Israel-Diaspora relations, issues of shared society, and the values of our Reform Jewish movement.

Prior to her work with IRAC, Noa was the Executive Director of the Jerusalem Open House, the LGBT community centre in Jerusalem.
