The new Israeli government coalition, which aligns with ultra-Orthodox and right-wing extremist parties, is poised to affect major changes on Israeli society, including limiting the Law of Return, delegitimizing non-Orthodox Judaism, and limiting LGBTQ rights. These moves are disturbing on their face, and they also threaten to further alienate Israel from Jews in North America.

Will the government’s policies undermine Jewish peoplehood within and beyond its borders? Tani Frank, director of the Hartman Institute’s Center for Judaism and State Policy, joins Yehuda Kurtzer for a discussion about the place of liberal values and liberal Judaism in Israel and ways that we can affect change in this political environment.
