What are your views on the claim that Israel is a secular and not a Jewish state?
Halfway through the show, a lot of antisemites take over the live chat and things get intense. We asked the mods not to remove their comments so that they demonstrate how big of a problem antisemitism is.
We talk to Yuval Berger to discuss religion in Israel. Yuval grew up in Israel in a small agricultural community most of my life, which was also close to Israeli Muslim communities. He is troubled by the significant lack of knowledge about Israel and the role of religion in it.
