Ruth Gavison

Ruth Gavison

A founding member of the Association for Civil Rights in Israel, member of the Israel Democracy Institute and an advocate of human rights, Ruth Gavison is keenly aware of the internal conflicts of the Jewish State. In an effort to diffuse one of these tensions, Gavison collaborated with an Orthodox rabbi to formulate a "Covenant," a new social contract to govern communal interaction between religiously observant and non-observant citizens of Israel.

Institution: Ruth Gavison.
