Sideways and Upward

By Lili Ben Ami

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, December 2012

The Israel tent protest movement of the summer of 2011 communicated two ideas to the Israeli government: (1) "Enough Erosion of the Middle Class" and (2) "The Nation Demands Social Justice." This phenomenon was temporary and rare, but authentic and sincere. Beyond the government's response, which resulted in profound yet limited strides, the protest changed the lives of thousands of people, influencing political parties and changing political discourse to focus on welfare, education, medicine and social justice.
