Inspirational Speech at Rally against the “Nation State” Bill - Rabbi Gilad Kariv

Date: ‏יום ראשון ‏15 ‏יולי ‏2018

"The Nation-State Law is contemptible," said Rabbi Gilad Kariv at last night's rally, "The spirit of the law is one of isolationism, insularity, and the construction of walls." He told elected officials not to be silent: "Don’t play your game of political poker at the expense of the values and character of Israeli society! Don’t play your game at the expense of the hope of nurturing here a tolerant, inclusive, and generous society! Don’t gamble away the most valuable coins of Israeli democracy!"

URJ President Rabbi Rick Jacobs: “We Vehemently Oppose Israel’s ‘Nation-State’ Bill”

Date: ‏יום ראשון ‏15 ‏יולי ‏2018

"We vehemently oppose the ‘nation-state’ bill being debated in the Knesset. If passed, it will create a dangerous precedent for democracy in Israel. It is a 180 degree turn from Israel’s Declaration of Independence, which enshrines freedom and democracy for all Israelis. This bill would instead upend democratic norms and create an Israel that is unequal. It is a grave threat to Israeli democracy."
