Israeli democracy has been under threat for years, but its new far-right government has taken those threats to a new level. Among those threats is an attack on the judiciary that could undermine Israel’s democratic norms for the long term. Join us as we speak with Elisheva Goldberg of the New Israel Fund who will talk about what happened to bring us to this moment, elucidate its significance, and speak about how different kinds of Israelis are standing up for their democratic institutions and saying “no” to autocracy.
Elisheva Goldberg is the Senior Director of Media and Policy for the New Israel Fund and a contributing writer for Jewish Currents magazine. She previously worked as the chief of staff for former Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, as a researcher for the progressive Israeli think tank Molad. She lives in New York with her husband and three kids.
