Congratulations to our alumnus Prof. Moshe Koppel '74 upon winning the "Oz Zion" Moskowitz Prize for Zionism for the year 5779, together with Yehudit Katsover and Nadia Matar - co-Chairwomen of the Movement for Sovereignty Founded by Women in Green, and Beit Shemesh Mayor Dr. Aliza Bloch.
 
Kohelet Forum Founder and Chairman Prof. Moshe Koppel founded the Kohelet Forum in 2012. This is a research and action institute that works to anchor Israel's permanent status as the nation-state of the Jewish People, while strengthening representative democracy and individual freedom in Israel. It is the largest research institute on the Israeli Right.
 
 
After seven years of quiet activity guided by Prof. Koppel, the Basic Law was passed: Israel is the historic nation-state of the Jewish People. Prof. Koppel formulated the first draft 15 years ago.
 
In addition, through the Forum, significant legislation and Zionist action was promoted in many areas, including the Basic Law, a preliminary referendum required to implement any legislation calling for withdrawal from territories under Israeli sovereignty, the Regulation Law, offsetting terrorist funds, Legislative amendments to remove employment barriers for immigrants, and more.
 
In recent years, the Kohelet Forum has become the center of activity in a growing network of civil society organizations on the Israeli Right that rely on Kohelet's expertise and resources in a quiet way.

 

Our congratulations to Moshe, his brother David '77, and the entire Koppel/Weber family.
