An Israel of, for and by the Jewish People?

The enactment of Basic Law: Israel as the Nation State of the Jewish People triggered an intense public debate in Israel. Is the Law indeed racist and discriminatory, as its opponents claim, or is it a valid entrenchment of the right of the Jewish people to self-determination, as claimed by its proponents? Is it primarily declaratory, or does it have real-life implications? The round-table discussion focuses on three areas of possible implications: the law’s impact on equality, self-determination, and social solidarity.
