Virtual Tour of South Tel Aviv

An interactive tour that introduces participants to the social issues and challenges facing Israeli society, and that are common across the globe: gaps and inequalities, attitudes towards refugees and migrant workers, and our relationships with ‘the other’. The tour centers around locations that demonstrate specific social issues.

We Declare: A Fresh Reading of the Israeli Declaration of Independence as a Modern Jewish Sacred Text:

Redefining the Relationship between Judaism and Democracy
Megilat Haatzmaut – The Israeli Declaration of Independence – is starting to become known as the 6th Megilah in the Jewish tradition.

This session includes an interactive text based study and discussion.

The Global Refugee Crisis and Israel: Study and Discussion with an Israeli Refugee Activist:

While the USA and the western world copes with unprecedented challenges of migration, Israel hosts tens of thousands of non-Jewish refugees and migrants, in addition to Jewish olim (immigrants).

21st Century Judaism: Making Judaism Relevant for New Generations Around the World

Many young Jews today don’t connect to traditional Jewish forms of affiliation and practice, but still crave a meaningful relationship with Judaism and Israel. This is true not only for Jews in the USA, but around the world and in Israel too. How can Jews around the world work together to create new, relevant approaches to Jewish expression and engagement, and how can the Israeli secular Jewish renaissance serve as a model and inspiration?

Synagogue and State: The Status and Future of Religious Pluralism in Israel

Unlike many European countries, there is no separation between Religion and State in Israel. Religion and State have coexisted in delicate balance for the last 70 years, but that balance is now changing andis facing a turning point today. Will there soon be civil marriage and same-sex marriage in Israel? Will businesses and public transit run on Shabbat? Will status be given to non-Orthodox movements? Find out about the current relationship between religion and state in Israel and what lies ahead in the future? And how will it affect Jews outside of Israel
