Start-Up Nation for All

Start-Up Nation for All

In this important article from the Jerusalem Post, Dena Weiss suggests that demographic changes have created a new reality where providing equal educational and employment opportunities for all sectors of Israeli society is a matter of economic necessity. Instead of viewing Israel’s Bedouin, Israeli-Arab and ultra-Orthodox populations as a threat, the author explains how creating a sustainable future for all depends on seeing these groups as an economic opportunity. Calling on Israel to rise above divisive identity politics to create a unifying vision of equal opportunity for all, she envisions a society where all sectors of society can maximize their abilities and contribute to Israel’s continued existence as an advanced Western society.
