What is Zionism? With Rabbi Jonathan Singer (4/14)
On April 14, join Rabbi Jonathan for the next “What are We Talking About When We Talk About Zionism,” this time with Rabbi Joshua Weinberg, Director of ARZA, the Reform Movement’s Zionist organization. He will focus on changes in Reform Jewish perspectives on Zionism and the growth of the Israeli Reform Movement and its challenges and responses.
What are We Talking About When We Talk About Zionism.
Taught by Rabbi Jonathan Singer
Join Rabbi Jonathan for a six-part lunch and learn with guests from different perspectives sharing about the beautiful complexity of Zionism, both from historic and contemporary perspectives. Zionism is both celebrated by some as being the miraculous expression of Jewish nationalism and questioned by others as an ideology that has become disconnected from Jewish values. As is our approach at Emanu-El, we want to bring in many voices and so will include Orli Bein from the New Israel Fund, Rabbi Josh Weinberg leader of ARZA- the Reform Movement’s Zionist Wing, a board member from IF NOT NOW, a speaker on Orthodox Zionism, and our own John Rothmann- who brings a wealth of historical knowledge and capacity for political analysis.
We will use Gil Troy’s updated version of Arthur Hertzbergs’ “The Zionist Idea” as our text.
Wednesdays from 12:00 – 1:00 pm. Bring your lunch and an open mind.
