The Past, Present, and Future of Am Yisrael: Jewish Peoplehood
Session 1: The Present

Dinner will be provided. Dietary laws observed.

Free

The Insight Israel Forum invites you to “The Past, Present, and Future of Jewish Peoplehood” a program exploring the evolving identity of the Jewish people and American Jews’ relationship with Israel. Through insightful discussions and historical reflections, we will navigate the challenges of the past, the complexities of the present, and envision the future pathways that unite our Jewish community in Baltimore, Israel, and beyond. 

Session 1 – The Present
With the generational divides of the American Jewish community seemingly wider than ever, how can we foster understanding and unity amongst the generations? How can we contribute to constructive dialogue about our shared identity and the future of Israel?  

Join us again for:
Session 2 – The Past: Tuesday, January 30th, 7:00 p.m. 
What lessons can we glean from challenging moments in the historical relationship between the Jewish diaspora and Israel? How can these insights inform our approach to fostering a more resilient and connected future for Am Yisrael

Session 3 – The Future: Tuesday, February 13th, 7:00 p.m. 
As we look towards the future, what are our aspirations and hopes for global Jewish peoplehood and our connection to Israel?  How do we navigate challenges and seize opportunities for the sustainable future of Am Yisrael

Personal Opinion Dialogue Seminars (PODS) space is limited for small-group discussions. Participation in all three POD sessions is strongly encouraged.

The Associated’s Insight Israel Forum provides opportunities for Baltimore Jewish community leaders to deepen and enhance their understanding of Israel, and to strengthen leaders’ abilities to have respectful discourse about difficult topics.
