When Longing Meets Reality

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

  • Thursday, April 19
  • Time: 7:00 pm (6:30 pizza for teens)
  • Fee: $10 adults; free for teens

Based on one of the first paragraphs of Israel’s Declaration of Independence, this lecture offers a chronological exploration of the longing for Zion and its reality. The clash between romantic longing from afar and the harsh realities of the land, have been, and often still are, very difficult even for the greatest lovers of Zion. Popular songs and poetry put to music will be part of this lecture.
