iEngage: Israel’s Milestones and Their Meanings

November 2, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

$50 – $75

iEngage: Israel’s Milestones and Their Meanings

A Shalom Hartman Institute Lecture and Study Series

Led by Rabbi Borodin

Through video lectures, text study, and lively group discussion, we are pleased to bring the
world-renowned faculty of the Shalom Hartman Institute
into the Beth Shalom community this fall.

iEngage: Israel’s Milestones and Their Meanings explores the pivotal events of 1917, 1947, and 1967 as key moments when Zionism unleashed new thinking about the meaning of Jewishness for generations to come. Memory is a central element in defining modern Jewish identity. As we look to Israel’s future, we need to engage anew with our past and explore its meanings and consequences. This iEngage series grapples with the different ideas and values that shape the meaning of modern Israel, Zionism, and Jewish identity today. Together we will engage in a new values-based discourse about Israel, including topics such as: nationhood, land, Sovereignty, Jerusalem, Occupation and Moral Red Lines.

Each session includes text study and discussion led by Rabbi Borodin, and video lectures and roundtable discussions with leading Hartman scholars.

iEngage is offered in two sessions per week to accommodate attendees with differing schedules. Sign up for either the Wednesday evening or Thursday afternoon sessions.

Wednesday Evenings, 7:30-9:00pm, 11/1, 11/15, 11/29, 12/6, 1/10, 1/24, 2/7, 2/21
Thursday Afternoons, 12-1:30pm, 11/2, 11/16, 11/30, 12/7, 1/11, 1/25, 2/8, 2/22

Come at 10:00am on Thursdays to volunteer, socialize, and connect with Beth Shalom friends for a variety of activities including:  Bake challah, casseroles, or dessert for Shabbat lunch; help CBS staff with small volunteer projects or do a community project at CBS.  During the weeks when Rabbi Borodin is not teaching, please stay for 12pm learning with Rabbi Rose.
