Emanu-El Israel Action Committee Fall Events:

The Ambivalence we feel at 50: Creating space to talk about Israelis, Palestinians, and the Conflict
Join us at Congregation Emanu-El for group conversations in a Café Dilemma format focusing on the conflicting emotions and concerns we feel fifty years after the Six Day War. We are creating intentional space to both discuss and hear different perspectives on peace, possible resolution, and how to be in this in-between place.
An evening with Natan Sharansky
Thursday, November 16, 7:00 – 9:00 pm
Join us for an evening with Natan Sharansky who will share his story, why he is doing the work he is doing now, and what the key urgent challenges are Israel and in Israel-US relations.
Advancing The Cause: The Left And Right Visions For American Jewry And Israel.
Dennis Prager in conversation with Alan Elsner of JStreet
December 10, 3:00 – 5:00 pm
Political polarization in the US has also spread ominously into the Jewish communal debate. Now which way forward? What is the best path as a Community to fulfill our unique mission as American Jews? Our unique role as stakeholders supporting the US-Israel relationship brings this choice into particular focus.
Our two distinguished speakers, Dennis Prager and Alan Elsner, both share strong Jewish roots and affiliation and yet diverge sharply in diagnostic perspectives and policy recommendations.
Join us for an epic conversation at Emanu-El. We look forward your participation!
