Memory is a central element in defining modern Jewish identity. As we look to Israel’s future, we need to engage anew with our past and explore its meanings and consequences. Through the consideration of major historic moments, this series grapples with the different ideas and values that shape the meaning of modern Israel, Zionism, and Jewish identity today. This innovative new course explores the pivotal events of 1947 and 1967 – following the 1917 Balfour Declaration – as key moments when Zionism unleashed new thinking about the meaning of Jewishness for generations to come. The course engages Jews in an open and pluralistic discussion about issues of Jewish identity, peoplehood, ethics, and theology, as they relate to nationhood, land, sovereignty, Jerusalem, occupation, and moral red lines.

This is an 8 week series, co-facilitated by Rabbi Rachel Gurevitz and Rabbi Marcia Plumb of Congregation Mishkan Tefila in Brookline. The course will bring members from both congregations together. The program is provided by the Shalom Hartman Institute, Jerusalem, and utilizes some pre-recorded presentations from their faculty each week.
