Orly Erez-Likhovski is the Executive Director of IRAC (Israel Religious Action Center), a Lawyer and a Member of the NY and Israeli Bar.

IRAC is the leading legal centre fighting for civil rights, immigrant aid, and anti-racist laws in Israel. Thanks to IRAC, gender segregation on public buses is illegal, Jewish supremacist, Kahanist candidates were disqualified from running for Knesset, Reform and Conservative converts are now recognized under the Law of Return, The Jerusalem March for Pride and Tolerance happens annually, and so much more.

Ms. Erez-Likhovski will speak about the situation on the ground in Israel today in light of the proposed judicial changes, and the LGBTQ+, Women’s rights, Arab rights and other cases she and her team are fighting in order to retain a liberal foothold in Israeli society. Time for discussion and a great opportunity to hear from a leading proponent of social justice and democracy in Israel today.
