Be Free Israel's 'Tashtit' Seminar in the Realm of State and Religion
We are happy to share few impressions from our weekend seminar for change makers in the realm of state and religion, conducted together with our partner ישראל חופשית Israel Hofsheet - Be Free Israel.
What are the recent developments regarding state and religion in Israel? What is the Jewish Israeli identity composed of and how does it influence perspectives of state and religion issues? What are the changes, which the Ultra-Orthodox community in Israel is currently experiencing and how to take this into consideration in the discourse on state and religion? What role can satire play in influencing public discourse?
These were just some of the questions and topics, which were discussed by the young activists, who are participating in the current 'Tashtit' course of Israel Hofsheet, which provides them with knowledge and tools to become change makers promoting individual freedom and pluralism in Israel. The seminar also was a good opportunity to look back at 10 years of Israel Hofsheet's fruitful work and 10 years of fruitful cooperation with FNF-Jerusalem.
