The Shir Tikvah Blog

Talking about the way we talk about Israel–continued…

Please note our special start time for this Erev Shabbat:  5:45pm

5:45-6:30pm —  Join us for informal conversation with our guest speaker and a light nosh

6:30-8:00— we’ll have tefilah and then hear from Ben Murane, the New Israel Fund North West Director of Outreach.   Ben will share stories of the good work being done by progressive organizations in Israel  – stories that don’t make the news.

We’ve invited Ben to speak as part of our ongoing exploration of how we as American Jews relate to Israel.  We seek to learn from those who have first hand experience,  as we choose our own thoughtful steps in the midst of the passion that the subject inspires.

Shir Tikvah has committed to bringing you different opportunities to learn about Israel in an atmosphere of makhloket, “sacred arguing”, in which we take care not only with our facts, but are also careful to share them respectfully and to listen mindfully.
