Opening night events include a conversation with the former US Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro, who grew up in Urbana-Champaign, and whose father was a faculty member in the English department and a founder of the Program in Jewish Culture and Society. Also, a plenary on the ways women are using the law to advocate for women's rights across traditional divisions in Israeli society, fighting against gender based violence, discrimination and inequity.
