Featured Speaker
MK Dr. Ruth Calderon
From the politics of the Talmud and the Mishnah to the politics of the Knesset

MK Dr. Ruth Calderon serves as Deputy Chairperson of the Knesset, and is a member of the education and state control committees. She is the chairperson and founder of the lobbies for Jewish renewal and parliamentary culture, as well as head of the Australia-Israel Friendship Association. Dr. Calderon is one of Israel's leaders in spearheading efforts to revive Hebrew Culture and a pluralistic Israeli-Jewish identity. In 1989, Dr. Calderon established the first Israeli secular, pluralistic and egalitarian Bet Midrash for women and men, with an Orthodox colleague. She is the author of A Bride for One Night, a personal homiletic reading of Talmudic legends, which was recently published in English.
