Meet Our Partner: The MirYam Institute – Israel’s Future In Israel’s Hands

December 18, 2020

As anti-Semitism spreads under the guise of anti-Zionism, the MirYam Institute brings together a forum of leading Israeli experts who fight anti-Israel sentiment on campus, in politics, and beyond. The Combat Anti-Semitism Movement is proud to partner with the MirYam Institute to further this cause. 

The MirYam Institute was established as a forum for leading Israeli experts of diverse and varied perspectives. At MirYam, they come together to share their expertise and to exchange their opinions about the state of Israel. They do so by way of online content and in-person presentations, lectures, debates and events.

The MirYam institute champions rigorous debate about Israel, led first and foremost by Israelis who hold diverse opinions; but who are all unified by their dedication to the continuing flourishing of Israel as a Jewish and democratic state.

The institute believes in robust debate across a range of topics, but eschews any debate about Israel’s right to exist, or the rights of her citizens to chart their own future, according to their own vision. MirYam believes that the global discussion about Israel must be informed, steered and led by Israeli voices.

For that reason, the credo of the institute is ‘Israel’s Future in Israel’s Hands.’

MirYam also believes that the fashioning of that future must not be outsourced to any third party, and that the tremendous achievements of Israel must not be overlooked as Israelis assess how best to tackle that which is yet to be achieved.
