Israel Diaspora Relations—Changing Narratives

Rachel Korazim, Visiting Scholar from Israel joins us for Yom Ha’atzma’ut 

  • Thursday, April 19
  • Time: 7:00 pm 
  • Fee: $10 adults; free for teens

Based on reflections on over 100 years of Jewish and Zionist history, this session will explore early images of Israel in the eyes of Dispora Jews as well as images of the Dispora in Israel.  The proximity of the Shoa to the birth of the state of Israel had a lot to do with these images.  We will explore possible new venues as Israel is now 70 years old and ready to explore more mature and age appropriate relations with Jewish communities overseas.
