Debate – Conscientious Objectors: Patriots or Traitors?

“This House supports the rights of IDF reservists to refuse to serve based on personal political views.” 

 7.30pm Sunday 25 June

 Our members, along with the rest of Israel, have taken a strong interest in the protests that have dominated the news over the last few months. The turmoil resulting from the proposed reforms is just the latest in a long history of demonstrations and strikes which define our national culture. At Netanya AACI we have an obligation to familiarize our members with the intricacies of the political environment. Therefore, we are pleased to announce a debate on this important topic.

Debate is an essential tool for maintaining democracy and an open society. Through debate, Netanya AACI aims to promote tolerance for divergent points of view in a forum where controversial issues will be examined through civil discourse.


Proposing the Motion:  Ofra Kaplan

Ofra Kaplan is a social activist and was one of the youngest members of the Meimad Committee, which spearheaded the left-wing religious-Zioinist movement founded in 1988 by Rabbi Yehuda Amitai. Kaplan ran for the Knesset in the recent elections.


Opposing the Motion: Benjamin Frieling

Benjamin Frieling served in the IDF in the building logistics unit and volunteers for the city disaster response team. He was Captain of his High School debate team.


Dr. Michael Bliss, former President of B’nai B’rith United Kingdom and a member of the European Executive, will chair the event.
