Does Anybody Hear Me? Monday, December 5, 9 PM
For the past few months, the debate about freedom of expression and freedom of protest has been raging in Israel, especially against the backdrop of the social-justice protests. What are the limits of freedom of expression and permissible protest?
The Iranian threat, ongoing terrorist attacks, and wars affect our society, economy, and culture at every moment-and Israelis have found many ways to cope with this situation.
Throughout Israel's history, songs, too, have been written in the ever-present shadow of war-ranging from themes of heroism to sharp criticism.
