Let’s Talk About Israel
- Date: Thursday, May 23, 2024
- Time: 7:00pm–8:00pm
Facilitator: Mark Dressner, Temple Israel Past President
We are very pleased to share a new 10-part Israel educational curriculum, to be facilitated by Mark Dressner, offered by URJ (Union of Reform Judaism) and ARZA (Association of Reform Zionists of America). The curriculum is based on the framework of the “4 Hatikva Questions” – “To Be,” “A People,” “Free,” “In Our Land,” taken from the penultimate line of Israel’s National anthem “Hatikva.” It is a resource to address all of Israel’s complexities in a safe and thorough way, focusing on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Sessions will include: Introduction to the concept, Peoplehood, Democracy, Israeli General Elections, Home-Land, The Kotel, Israeli Judaism, The “O” Word, and Morality of War .
