“The response to the event requires understanding of the cultural perception of justice in the Israeli and Jewish society, as well as some overview of existing restorative justice mechanisms which currently operate in Israeli society. This paper aims to explore the ways in which the truth about such violent events could be revealed, in order to attain justice and to begin constructing mechanisms for redress.” (abstract)
