The Jew Among the Nations: Where are We Headed?

Taught by Rabbi Jay Rosenbaum
Monthly Thursdays beginning October 27 ● 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM via Zoom

For the past two millennia, the Jewish posture toward the nations of the world has been dominated by the need to defend ourselves. Times have changed. With the success of Israel and American Jewry, we have a unique moment of opportunity to have a collective impact for good on the world. Yet, antisemitism and anti-Zionism have not disappeared. If we could formulate a foreign policy for the Jewish people today, how much of it would be shaped by our need to defend ourselves?  And, how much of it would be shaped by dreams of transforming the world?

Israel Matters: How Christians and Jews May Think Similarly and Differently About the People and the Land

Interfaith discussion with Rabbi Jay Rosenbaum and Rev. Elizabeth Riley
Mondays beginning November 7 ● 7:00 PM – 8:45 PM at Emanuel Episcopal Church

We will explore Jewish and Christian perspectives on what Jews call The Land of Israel and what Christians (and sometimes Jews) often refer to as The Holy Land. Topics include:

  • Israel in Judaism and Jewish History
  • The Jewish experience outside the Land of Israel
  • The Israeli/Palestinian/Arab/Muslim Conflict

What are the roots of our perspectives? Where do we differ? And where can we find common ground?
