Wilshire Boulevard Temple (WBT) and Israel Bonds in association with Liberate Art will bring high profile artists from music, television and film together to have an impactful conversation about the issues surrounding the cultural boycott campaign against Israel.

Sadly, anti-Semitism is on the rise across the globe.
