Session 1: History is Not the Past – Understanding the Modern State of Israel through the lens of the Land.

Using maps, major historical milestones, and multiple narratives, we will develop a deeper understanding of thousands of years of history and how that history affects the contemporary conversation.

 

Session 2: This is Not Your Bubbie’s Israel – 2020 Israeli Demographics: Opportunities and Challenges

This session will allow you to gain a deeper understanding of who lives in Israel today, how the past affects the present society and how diversity can be both a challenge and an opportunity for the future of the State of Israel.

 

Session 3: How We Got Here and Where are We Going – Jewish Identity in the 21st Century.

This session will investigate how different streams of Jewish thought, philosophy, religion, culture, ethnicity and national and ritual identity came to be, and how they influence the contemporary conversation in Israel, the United States and around the world.

Zoom link will be provided in your confirmation email.
