Love, Hate, and the Jewish State: An Interactive Workshop on Israel and Social Justice
How do our expectations of Israel and Israelis relate to the expectations we have of Canada and of ourselves?
On what values are these expectations based? And can these values change?
Designed to facilitate dialogue, this fully interactive session will help us explore our Jewish values and how they apply to Canada and Israel in similar or different ways.Using activities, discussion, and short text study, we will explore religious pluralism, military service, human rights, the environment, economy, LGBTQ rights, and more. Although the dialogue is about the place of Israel, the session’s conversation will be non-political, non-persuasive, and confidential.
