Hagai Stadler is an Israeli business leader and an Orthodox Jew. He is also one of the leaders of the ongoing protest movement in Israel that seeks to prevent the implementation of controversial judicial reforms. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government plans to greatly reduce the powers of Israel’s Supreme Court and the country’s attorney general, a move that opposition leaders say would harm Israel’s democracy.
Hagai Stadler has spoken at the rallies held against the reforms. He is also a founder of a movement of religious-Zionist Israelis who oppose the current coalition government.

“[About] the speech from yesterday evening at the demonstration in Kaplan,” posted Stadler on Facebook, “It’s not easy to go on stage, but I couldn’t forgive myself if I didn’t do everything to keep Israel Jewish democratic, and to prevent a rift in the people that will be a cry for generations!”
“The pain is real and deep, the soul bird of whole publics. A prayer for peace at home. For peace in the nation,” he said. “A fundamental change is only made with broad agreement! Share to anyone you think is open to hearing. With God’s will we will do and succeed.”
“Today I met wonderful people in the past, friendships and friends who call for change only with broad agreement,” Hagai Stadler said. “You can wave the warnings of hundreds of historians, jurists and economists from Israel and the world.”
“But it is impossible to ignore the enormous rift in the nation that the process has created, and the real and deep pain of entire publics,” he added. “The perfection of the people is an existential need. For a change. In favor of a broad agreement. Brothers refusing to be enemies!”
