18 months ago the Social Justice Movement started in Israel, also known as ‘J14’ after the date of its inception, July 14th. The protest was unique in the country’s recent history; leaderless, well-informed and nationally unifying.  What began as a small protest against rising housing prices in Tel Aviv quickly resonated throughout the country, culminating in a march of almost half a million and a covenant for social equality created by activists, academics and members of the business community.
