upcoming special events!
Today’s Jewish young people are barraged on campuses and schools with criticism of Israel, a steady drumbeat of “apartheid state” and “oppressor.” Yet their parents and grandparents grew up in a world that celebrated the small state surviving and thriving in a sea of hostility. How can they communicate about the reality of Israel across such a strong divide?
Join us for a fascinating dialogue about this Israel generation gap with Jewish thinkers, old and young, fathers and daughters, including a leading historian of American Judaism, a 2014 Yale graduate currently studying to become an Orthodox rabbi, one of the most influential Rabbis and scholars of our time, and a doctoral student at the University of New South Wales.
IN CONJUNCTION WITH OUR CURRENT EXHIBITION:
Once a month for seven months, our exhibition will rotate through the diversity that is Israel, from the ultramodern to the ancient, the religious to the secular and the new generation to the survivors of Jewish triumph and tragedy:
