Advocate Keshet is a critical member of RHR’s social justice team, working on the local level to ensure economically vulnerable Israelis at our Hadera Rights Center receive the rights they are entitled to, and on a national level, where she combats poverty through policy and legislative advocacy work at the Knesset. Her opinions on public housing and other social justice topics are often solicited by the media, she has been interviewed by Karen Neubach on her popular radio show, and her successes have been highlighted on Israeli news sites such as Haaretz.
