Engaging Israel: Foundations for a New Relationship

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session will preview the groundbreaking curriculum, "Engagin israel," from the Shalom Hartman Institute in Jerusalem, which will be offered in the fall by the Rocky Mountain Rabbinical Council. Going deeper than politics or advocacy, Engaging Israel re-frames the discussion about the significance of Israel for contemporary Jews worldwide and equips communities with a Jewish values-based vocabulary to articulate why Israel can and should be fundamental to their Jewish identity.
