Description

iEngage - Jewish Values and the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

(A 12-session course from the Shalom Hartman Institute)

Thursdays from 7:00 – 9:00 PM Beginning September 5 (Space is limited)

This program is for Temple Rodef Shalom members only.

Taught by Rabbi Stephanie Bernstein

We are excited to offer our third iEngage course this fall: “Jewish Values and the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict.” iEngage, a project of the Shalom Hartman Institute, offers a new narrative regarding the significance of Israel for Jewish life, with the goal of elevating the existing discourse from a crisis-based focus to one rooted in Jewish values and ideas. Developed by a team of internationally renowned scholars in the fields of Jewish studies, Middle East politics, and history, iEngage addresses core questions pertaining to the necessity and significance of the State of Israel.

Our upcoming course will help us explore one of the most divisive issues affecting the Jewish people today—the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Through the study of Jewish narratives about Israel and the examination of the complex meanings of peace in Jewish tradition, participants are invited to explore the ideas and values that animate different attitudes toward the conflict and how these values shape their own political understandings. Though a common political understanding may not be attainable, this course strives to achieve a shared respect for our differences.
