Yossi Klein Halevi co-authored “An Open Letter to Israel’s Friends in North America” with Matti Friedman and Daniel Gordis in the Times of Israel. Together, they wrote:

“North American Jews and their leaders must make clear to this government that if it continues on the path to transforming Israel into a country of which Diaspora Jews can no longer be proud, there will be no business as usual. We and our families, along with many tens of thousands of other Israelis, are in the streets every week demanding the government end its war against our democratic values and institutions. We need your voice to help us preserve Israel as a state both Jewish and democratic.”

In this timely briefing Yossi Klein Halevi (Senior Fellow, Shalom Hartman Institute; author, Like Dreamers and Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor) joins Sarah Hurwitz (author, Here All Along) in conversation on this consequential moment and the role of North American Jews in securing Israel’s future.
