Women’s Rights Under Fire In Israel

Regev Ben-David, Meesh Hammer-Kossoy, Ben Murane, Liz Nord, Leora Tanenbaum

Israel, Social Justice

Women’s rights have become one of the major issues in Israel’s social upheaval that began with the tent protests this past summer. While some ultra-Orthodox Jews push for gender segregation in public spaces from buses to sidewalks, women across the country are standing up for their equal rights. Join a panel discussion about the implications of this growing issue for Israel’s future and learn about citizens who are working on it presently.

Film Screening & Discussion: Jericho’s Echo

Arts & Performance, Identity & Global Culture

Join us for a screening of selected clips from the critically acclaimed documentary, “Jericho's Echo: Punk Rock in the Holy Land”, followed by a Q & A with director Liz Nord. In Jericho’s Echo, rebellious Israeli youth take up the arms of loud guitars and mohawks in the most politically charged area of the world and we see how these well-spoken and outspoken kids deal with the complexities of coming-of-age in Israel.
