Israel Engagement

October 23, 30, November 6, 13 | 7:30-9 PM
Join many communities of concerned individuals in establishing a new narrative of Jewish values and ideas that encourages Jews to engage with Israel and to act on a vision of what they believe can and ought to shape the modern Jewish nation and its policies.

The American Jewish conversation on Israel needs a makeover, suggests Dr. David Myers, professor of Jewish History at the University of California, Los Angeles. Weigh in as we listen to his position and get a glimpse into unexpected takes on Israel today.


 iEngage: Values and Conflict with Rabbi Judith Siegal & Rabbi Danny Young
A project of the Shalom Hartman Institute
February 26, March 5, 12, 19 | 7:30pm-9 PM
Explore one of the most divisive issues affecting the Jewish people today. Through the study of Jewish narratives about Israel and the unpacking of the complex meanings of peace in Jewish tradition, participants are invited to explore the ideas and values that animate different attitudes toward the conflict and how these values shape their own political understandings. Though a common political platform may not be attainable, this course strives to achieve a shared respect for our differences. This program is made possible thanks to the Greater Miami Jewish Federation, CAJE-Miami, and Targum Shlishi.
