Jewish Values in the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict: Explore different attitudes towards the conflict through a study of Jewish narratives about Israel and the unpacking of the complex meanings of peace in Jewish tradition.
WEDNESDAYS at 8 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.
Central Themes of the course:
Through these sessions we hope to model an approach to conversations about the conflict in which values and ideas, rather than politics, take center stage.
