A talk with Avrum Burg, political leader, author, and activist.

Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East and, at the same time, it faces significant challenges.

Non-Orthodox Jews do not have the right to marry with their chosen rabbis. Palestinian Israeli citizens - 20% of the population - do not feel fully accepted and equal. In the territories, Palestinians and Jews are governed by different sets of laws.

What needs to be done for Israel to truly be a democratic homeland for the Jewish people? And what is the role of the Diaspora in this historic endeavor?

Avrum Burg is a social and political activist, and has been a well-known public leader in Israel for over 20 years. The youngest Speaker in the history of the Israeli Parliament, the Knesset (1999-2003) and a staunch supporter of peace in the Middle East, Burg has been referred to as "one of the best speech-makers in politics."
