Modern Israel: It’s Complicated!

  • Thursday, December 5
  • 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM
  • Program Leader: Rabbi Bob Orkand

Rabbi Orkand will, once again, offer an opportunity to discuss Israel current events in an open and welcoming setting. It is obvious to all who care about Israel that the news reports can be ever-changing and confusing. And, the relationship between Israel and the American Jewish community is constantly changing and confusing. All of this will be on the table for conversation and analysis.

Various articles will be provided and a new, upcoming book by Dr. Daniel Gordis entitled “We Stand Divided: The Rift Between American Jews and Israel” will be recommended reading. In addition, Dr. Gordis’s visit to Temple Beth Elohim on October 16 will “count” as a class date.

Dates: Thursdays, Oct 3, 10 & 24, Nov 7, Dec 5; Wednesday, October 16 for the Dr. Gordis event.

RSVP to Lynn Burke to participate.
