Walking a Tightrope: The Supreme Court Balancing Jewish and Democratic Israel

Author : WZO

This booklet, produced by the WZO, offers a comprehensive look into a fascinating aspect of the intricacy of Israeli democracy: Basic Law: Human Dignity and Liberty. Through the discussion of several key legal cases, participants delve into the complexities of Israeli life, the tension between democracy and Judaism, the efforts to keep the legal system pure and neutral while struggling with existential issues, and the role that Israel’s Supreme Court plays in keeping Israeli democracy unharmed when the state (still) does not have a proper constitution.
