Description: The Israel Current Events Program (ICEP) is a discussion group in which we learn, examine, and explore important aspects of Israeli current events and how they impact Israel today. An invited speaker with share his/her expertise on a specific topic, usually Israeli, followed by Q&A and group discussion. Topics are chosen based on timely and pressing issues facing Israel. Email Robin Goldenson, [email protected], or Paul Zorfass, [email protected], with questions. No registration is required - just drop in! Program duration is designed for an exciting and provocative one hour with occasional spill-over.
As always Q&A follows.
It is impossible to understand modern-day Israel without understanding the dreams, hopes, and challenges with which the Jewish state began in 1948.
Rabbi Bob Orkand will continue his very popular history of Israel class by looking at the inspirational stories of those who founded Israel as well as the challenges—both internal and external—faced by these brave—and some would say foolhardy--chalutzim (pioneers).
No prior knowledge is needed, nor is it necessary to have participated in last semester’s class.
