Images of Israel A Brooklyn Collaborative Lecture Series
Feb 17, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
How can we develop a richer and more tolerant discourse about Israel in our communities, rather than the current vitriol which pervades Jewish communal conversation? Join us for three public conversations to address this question.
The focus of these conversations will be diverse images of Israel, for often what lies behind the disparate positions about Israel held by members of the Jewish community are different visions and aspirations of what Israel is and should be. These essential narratives and assumptions about the State of Israel can profoundly impact the way we think about current policy questions in Israel today. Examining these narratives will help us learn to speak across difference in a way that manifests idealism and mutual respect.
