When author, speaker, & researcher Dan Feferman, first visited Dubai, he felt that he had stepped 20 years into the future. Tune in as Steven Shalowitz welcomes Dan onto IsraelCast for our Abraham Accord series. Listen to their conversation on the differences of Israeli business culture vs. the UAE, the warm welcome both countries had for one another, and the doors that this peace agreement opens for the rest of the Middle East.
Dan Feferman is a Fellow at the Jewish People Policy Institute and a Major (res.) in the Israel Defense Forces. We talk about the emerging phenomenon of Israeli Judaism and marginal trends among American Jewry that could become the new mainstream.
Dan Feferman: The rise of Reform and Conservative Judaism in Israel
Shmuel Rosner and Dan Feferman discuss the reform and conservative communities in Israel, what differentiates them from the communities in the states and how they will thrive in Israel. For nearly a decade Dan served as a foreign policy and national security analyst and advisor to the General Staff, as a special assistant to the Deputy Chief of the General Staff and as a commander in an elite intelligence unit within the IDF’s Research and Analysis Division - where he continues to serve in reserve duty. He recently published his paper - rising streams, about the reform and conservative moments in Israel. Follow Shmuel Rosner on Twitter.
