Diversity in Israeli Society in Light of the October 7 Massacre

Monday, December 18, 2023

7:30 p.m. EST - 9:00 p.m. EST
Event Host
In Partnership with the Haberman Institute for Jewish Studies

Diversity in Israeli society and the social challenges it creates is multidimensional – with political, economic, national, ethnic, gender, and religious identities all playing a role. The massacre of October 7 and the ensuing war in Gaza have strained internal relations in Israeli society among these groups; relations that present both promise and peril for its future.

Dr. Amit Schejter (full biography), professor of communication studies at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, whose research focuses on diverse and marginalized populations in Israel, will discuss the makeup of Israeli society before the current war with Gaza and the role that diversity plays in Israeli society now and portends for the future.
