What do the changes in Israel’s government mean for American Jews and Diaspora Jews around the world? How is the uptick in global antisemitism related people’s perception of Israeli politics and Israeli leadership? How are we as Reform Jews supposed to feel about Israel? Join Bret Stephens in conversation with Rabbi Dan Levin to explore these important questions as Israel celebrates its 75th year of independence.
