Milestones and Memory: Explore Israeli history and Jewish identity with iEngage at Hebrew College.
Memory is a central element in defining modern Jewish identity. As we look to Israel’s future, we need to engage anew with our past and explore its meanings and consequences. Taught by Rabbi Dan Liben, this innovative new iEngage course explores the pivotal events of 1947 and 1967—following the 1917 Balfour Declaration—as key moments when Zionism unleashed new thinking about the meaning of Jewishness for generations to come.
The course engages participants in an open and pluralistic discussion about issues of Jewish identity, peoplehood, ethics and theology as they relate to nationhood, land, sovereignty, Jerusalem, occupation and moral red lines.
This eight-session class meets March 12 to May 14 on Mondays from 7:30-9 p.m.
