Tuesday 6/18 from 7:30pm in the Beit Midrash

Learn about religious pluralism and the practice and status of Masorti Judaism in Israel with Rabbi Andrew Sacks.
Rabbi Andrew Sacks made Aliyah, from the Philadelphia area in 1987. Since that time he has been a leading voice on behalf of religious pluralism and tolerance in Israel. He serves as the director of the Rabbinical Assembly in Israel, the organization of Masorti/Conservative rabbis. He is also the leading expert of issues relating to conversion, Aliyah, and religious rights in Israel. His blog may be found here.


Presented by Israeli American Council, hosted by CBS.

Since the days of King David, the Jewish people never had an artist like Naomi Shemer whose music was sung by so many and had such a vast and dramatic effect and influence on the Jewish and Israeli narrative.

Over 1,000 songs were written and composed by Shemer. Many of which tell the story of the State of Israel—from its birth through today, in happy times and sad. Her work is still very much ‘alive’ and cherished by all.  Naomi Shemer belongs to everyone, in the Jewish State and across the world.

Roy Rimshon, a self-confessed Naomi Shemer enthusiast, brings light and life to Shemer’s story. From her childhood in Kibbutz Kinneret through adolescence, from her musical education and early songs to becoming a living legend, Shemer’s life is a colorful narrative. Rimshon’s lectures combine well-known songs, videos and rare pictures, unfolding the life and work of this most influential and loved artist of the State of Israel.

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
