Recent events are worrying for liberal supporters of Israel: the passing of the Nation-State Law, violence in Gaza, corrosion of LGBTQ rights, asylum seekers in limbo, and more. Israel’s democratic character is being called into question there and in Canada. What’s happening to Israel’s democracy?
On October 20th, one of Israel’s most prominent celebrities visits Toronto to share a message of hope. Along with thousands of others in Israel, Noa relentlessly stands up for human rights, shared society, and peace. She does so despite bullying from illiberal forces there and here — and naysayers who believe there’s nothing we can do.
Noa is known internationally as an Israeli singer-songwriter. And her indefatigable championing of social causes has earned her a long list of accolades, including UN Goodwill Ambassador, Italian knighthood, the Dove of Peace Award by Shimon Peres, and more. She is also a board member of the New Israel Fund in Israel.
Join this unique evening of conversation with Noa (and a little music) to learn why now’s the time to stand up for Israel’s founding values.
