On September 4, The Times of Israel hosted a live webinar in which authors Yossi Klein Halevi, Daniel Gordis and Matti Friedman called on Diaspora Jews to take a stance on Israel’s judicial overhaul — and support the widespread protest movement.

We at The Times of Israel are dedicated to giving our readers a real-time look at all perspectives driving the current judicial overhaul crisis.

Our follow-up webinar, “Diaspora Jews & Israel’s judicial overhaul: Differing stances,” takes on that mission. We have invited three additional thought leaders who will share their insights on how — or if — Diaspora Jewry can aid a torn Israel right now.

Join former United States ambassador to Israel David Friedman, former MK Michal Cotler-Wunsh and Prof. Gil Troy on September 20 at 7 p.m. Israel time (12 p.m. ET) for an hour-long webinar moderated by ToI deputy editor Amanda Borschel-Dan, who will put our reader’s questions to the trio.
