Chairman of the Jewish Agency discuss the key flashpoints in the Israeli-Diaspora relationship


As Chairman of the Jewish Agency, Isaac Herzog sets out to connect Israel, Israelis and the Jewish people worldwide. But while the unbreakable bonds between the State of Israel and Diaspora Jewry have been crucial to the wellbeing of both, in recent years tensions have been on the rise.

Sir Mick Davis has held some of British Jewry’s most high-profile leadership roles but has been an outspoken critic of Israel’s current government. He recently asserted that Jewish discourse around Israel has become so polarised, vicious and impoverished that it constitutes a long-term existential threat to the community.

Join us for a wide-ranging discussion of the key flashpoints in the Israeli-Diaspora relationship, how to resolve them and why it is vital that we do so, for the sake of Israel, Jewish communities and the unity of the Jewish People.
