Advanced Political Course Graduation Ceremony

Rabbanit Adina Bar Shalom and former Shas spokesperson Itzik Sudri spoke at our Advanced Political Course Graduation Ceremony

 

In April we hosted Rabbanit Adina Bar Shalom, the daughter of former Shas spiritual leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef z"l and this year's Israel Prize recipient, and Itzik Sudri former Shas spokesperson at the Graduation Ceremony for our Seventh Advanced Political Course. Both Bar Shalom and Sudri emphasized the decisive role that the ultra-orthodox public can and should play in promoting an agreement between Israel and the Palestinians on the basis of the Geneva Initiative.Both speakers emphasized the urgent need to reach an agreement based on the two state solution.

Sudri noted that recently a rift has developed between the ultra-orthodox and the right wing in Israel, which includes enormous differences in relation to the peace process. The ultra-orthodox support a peace agreement based on the Geneva Initiative. The fascinating evening was a rare opportunity to hear two key figures in the ultra-orthodox world speak so openly. Congratulations to all of the graduates of the course.
