We Declare! Israeli Democracy: Past, Present and Future


Democracy in Israel today is in a state of crisis.

It faces ever increasing challenges – political, social,

religious and educational.

There is no better time to come together

to discuss and debate the State of Israel’s

founding document, its Declaration of

Independence – Megillat HaAtzmaut.

Through the words of the Declaration, we will rise

above the crisis, creating a dialogue between

different perspectives.  


Join us for a Havdalah ceremony where we

will move from commemoration to independence,

followed by a re-reading of the Megillah by

representatives of different sectors of society

in a shared dialogue with the past as a way

to develop the narrative of the Jewish People

into the future.
