From pressure to sit at the back of public buses to attacks on schoolgirls for dressing “immodestly”, an Orthodox woman requires tremendous strength and commitment to push back against efforts to marginalize women in Israel.

Join NIFC and feminist pioneer Hannah Kehat, founder of Israel’s first Orthodox feminist organization, Kolech (‘your voice’). Kehat is a dynamic leader of the discourse in Israel around feminism and religious pressure on women.

Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to hear from award-winning author and screenwriter Sayed Kashua in Canada. Considered the “Israeli Seinfeld”, Kashua addresses the problems faced by Arabs and Jews in Israel, caught between two worlds with a humorous, tongue-in-cheek style. Join us for a conversation and screening of the hit Israeli TV show “Arab Labor” (Avoda Aravit), created and written by Sayed Kashua.
