When it comes to Israel, it seems like everyone has a passionate opinion โ€” but not everyone has the historical, theological and geopolitical context to backup their arguments and positions… And with anti-Israel rhetoric and activity on the rise โ€” in our streets, in our workplaces and in our children’s classrooms โ€” it’s more important than ever for parents to become more educated.

During this three-session course for Religious School and Early Childhood Center parents and grandparents taught by Rabbi Tracy Kaplowitz, Ph.D., learners will study the historical Jewish connections to Israel, the purpose and definition of Zionism, and what makes Israel unique โ€” and not-so-special โ€” among nations. We’ll explore primary sources โ€” such as maps, videos, archaeology, articles and other texts โ€” and engage with common criticisms of Israel and Zionism in order to build foundations upon which to layer your personal connections and convictions about Israel.
