In this special issue Plus61J Media explores the successes and the challenges of contemporary Israel. We honour what has been built and we face honestly where Israel is failing.
We celebrate freedom achieved but we condemn shrinking civil rights and attacks on democracy. We rejoice in the release of Jews from thousands of years of oppression, but we are angered by the oppression of Palestinians. We cheer Israel’s many achievements, but we worry about its political, social, and environmental sustainability.
We are grateful for the hope fulfilled in the creation of the State, but we hope and believe we can build a better Israel.
