"Examining a Pluralistic Israel" proved to be a challenging and forthright dialogue with Uri, internationally renowned advocate of religious liberty and the liberal movements of Judaism in his native Israel and around the world. Regev currently serves as the President and CEO of a new educational and advocacy Israel-Diaspora partnership, “Freedom of Religion for Israel” and of its Israeli counterpart, “Hiddush – For Freedom of Religion and Equality.”
