With over 60,000 Eritrean and Sudanese asylum seekers in Israel at the moment, the country is facing some tough questions regarding what it means to be a Jewish State. This interactive presentation will explore the various opinions within Israeli politics about how to treat these individuals. There will also be time for discussion about how Israel’s policy towards asylum seekers may impact on the relationship between diaspora Jews and Israel.
