Democracy in the Spotlight
Save the Date! The Z3 conference is back—be sure not to miss it.
We are excited to host our annual Zionism 3.0 conference on Sunday, October 15.
Who would have thought that democratic values, assumed to be self-evident for so long, would come into question in 2017? And who would have predicted that Israel and the United States would be facing many of the same issues?
Be part of this extraordinary Bay Area event where world-class panelists discuss and debate the most pressing concerns facing Israeli and Jewish American societies today.
Speakers include: Keynote Speaker Jeffrey Goldberg, Chief Editor of The Atlantic; Anne Kornblut, Director of Strategic Communications for Facebook and Pulitzer Prize-winning American journalist; Yonit Levy, Chief Anchor for Israeli Prime Time News on Channel 2; Rabbi Dr. Donniel Hartman, President of the Shalom Hartman Institute; Rabbi Rick Jacobs, President of the Union for Reform Judaism; Larry Diamond, Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution and at the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies; Nathaniel Persily, a nationally recognized constitutional law expert; and many, many more.

On the Agenda:

* Elected by the Majority, Controlled by the Minority?

* Democracy and the Role of Media: The Rapidly Evolving (or Devolving) Relationship Between Democratically Elected Governments and the Free Press

* Is Israel Empowering Anti-Zionists in Government?

* Hate Speech vs. Free Speech on Campus—Pressure Testing the First Amendment

* The Middle East and Democracy: the Arab View Point and a Discussion on Israel as an Island of Democracy in the Region

* Democracy and Security: How Much Control is Needed to Keep the Population Safe? Are We Willing to Give Up that Freedom?

Sign up early and save; prices go up September 23. The cost includes a full day of world-class speakers, community organization involvement, delicious lunch and a cocktail party.
