ISRAEL AND THE THREAT OF JEWISH FUNDAMENTALISM
Weds, February 21  |  12:00-1:15 PM
Join Sources Editor Claire Sufrin and Tomer Persico for a conversation about this growing phenomenon and its connection to October 7th and the Israel-Hamas War.

As Donniel and Yossi discuss in today's episode, Israel has witnessed a significant growth of Jewish fundamentalism including entry into the highest echelons of the Israeli government. In his article on settler violence and two types of Jewish fundamentalism from the Fall 2023 issue of Sources, Tomer Persico presciently argues that religious fundamentalists threaten to undermine both Israel and Judaism. Read his piece, and then join him later this month for a virtual conversation on this topic.
