The Jewish Story Season 6 

Interlude – Constitution Now!

Rav Mike Feuer calls for a constructive alternative to the current mass protests against judicial reform being debated in Israel’s Knesset. Along the way he touches upon some historical context about Prime Minister David Ben Gurion, Supreme Court Justice Aharon Barak, Meir Kahane’s Kach party and what the Israeli Declaration of Independence actually says. On the way toward a new model of national covenant, the Jewish State needs to learn to speak to one another again, and that also requires understanding how the Disengagement from Gaza and destruction of Gush Katif in 2005 affect the current political situation.
