Herzog says judicial crisis presents a unique opportunity to write a constitution

Despite his concerns regarding the crisis in Israeli society over the judicial overhaul, President Isaac Herzog says he believes that this presents a real opportunity for Israel to arrive at a real constitution.

“We are in the midst of a deep and worrying crisis. But I really believe with all my heart that today we also face a major, historic opportunity,” Herzog says, calling it “an opportunity for a balanced, smart constitutional arrangement and an agreement on the relations of the authorities in our Jewish and democratic country, in our beloved country.”

“We are at a crossroads: a historical crisis or a defining constitutional moment,” he says.
