For International Women’s Day, ARZA and the UPJ introduce a special interview being brought to Australia by the ZFA on Sunday March 7, at 7 pm. MERAV MICHAELI MK is Head of the Israeli Labor Party for the coming Israeli elections. She is a champion for women’s rights through decades of activism.

While ARZA and the UPJ are non-partisan Zionist Jewish organisations, we do encourage you to view this event, knowing that Progressive Rabbi Gilad Kariv is number 4 on the Labor ticket with a good chance of being elected to the Knesset. He would be the first Progressive Rabbi to join the Knesset as a Member.
