Temple Beth El, Hadassah, and the Shalom Hartman Institute are co-sponsoring this exciting new class. This course explores one of the most divisive issues affecting the Jewish people today: the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Through the study of Jewish narratives about Israel and the unpacking of the complex meanings of peace in Jewish tradition, participants will explore the ideas and values that animate different attitudes toward the conflict and how these values shape their own political understandings. Though a shared political platform may not be attainable, this course strives to achieve a shared respect for our differences.

Each session includes text study and discussion led by Rabbi Amy Katz and Sue Polansky, and video lecture and interviews with leading Hartman scholars.

The cost is $100 per student, plus the cost of Hadassah membership for any new or associate member ($36 annual membership; $250 life membership; $250 associate membership for men).
