 "If You See Something, Say Something."

Israel's  Declaration of Independence ensures social and political rights to all of Israel's inhabitants

irrespective of religion, race or sex. There are instances when Israel goes off course. "What should Diaspora Jews do?"

In this presentation, Ms. Hoffman will suggest an action guide for the perplexed.
