"Where Do We Go From Here? The Israeli Judicial Overhaul" Webinar
On Thursday, July 3, 2023, American Friends of the Hebrew University (AFHU) presented the webinar, “Where Do We Go from Here? The Israeli Judicial Overhaul.” Presented in association with the Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s (HU) Harry S. Truman Research Institute for the Advancement of Peace, a global audience witnessed a discussion of the Israeli Knesset’s recent elimination of the Israeli Supreme Court’s ability to strike down legislation based upon “reasonableness.”
Introduced by AFHU CEO Josh Rednik and HU President Prof. Asher Cohen, the discussion featured Dan Meridor, Chairman of the Truman Institute and former Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Justice, as well as Prof. Netta Barak-Corren of the HU Faculty of Law and an expert on Israeli jurisprudence. Termed, “A crisis about the nature of Israel,” by Mr. Meridor, this timely discussion offers important perspectives from some of Israel’s leading thought leaders.
