Can the Tribes of Modern Israel Dwell Together?
Livestream lecture from the Jewish Theological Seminary
Wednesday, Nov. 29, 7:30 – 9:15 pm
Temple Israel will hold a livestream screening of JTS’s Cohen Lecture, on the topic Can the Tribes of Modern Israel Dwell Together?
· Rabbi Tamar Elad-Appelbaum, founder and spiritual leader, Kehilat Zion of Jerusalem. (and speaker at Rabbi Fish’s installation)
· Racheli Ibenboim, director of Telem, which works to integrate the ultra-Orthodox into general Israeli society
· Professor Arnold M. Eisen, chancellor, JTS
On the 70th anniversary of the UN Partition Plan for Palestine, a major step in the creation of Israel, the partitions within Israeli society threaten the very future of the State. Can the divisions be bridged between Israel’s secular, national religious, ultra-Orthodox, and Arab citizens? Can they talk to each other and work together to forge a new partnership? And what is the role of caring Diaspora Jews in achieving this goal?
Join two insightful and innovative Israeli leaders, and JTS Chancellor Arnold M. Eisen, for this important discussion.
Please arrive at 7:15 for a prompt 7:30 start time. We will have a discussion of the talk following the screening. There is no charge for this event.
