As the American Jewish/Israeli relationship becomes increasingly complex, it’s crucial we step back and examine our history. Join us to explore the events and personalities that shaped American Judaism’s attitudes toward Israel, taught by Rabbi Dan Judson, dean of the Hebrew College Rabbinical School.

We will start by examining attempts to create a kibbutz in Buffalo back in 1825 and move through Louis Brandeis’ transformation of American Zionism and onward until we arrive at the most recent debates of divestment. Together we will debate what it has meant—and still means—to be an American Zionist.

If this class interests you, please attend whenever you can! That said, there are only three sessions and they will build at least in part upon one another. Registration is for the whole course; scholarships are available.
