Shabbat Celebrating Israel's 71st Birthday "State of the Union"

The evening commences with a short Shabbat service with readings poetry and music, followed by a discussion on Israel led by Rabbi Denise Handlarski, featuring information and insights by members Dror Orbach (who is from Israel and understands the political and social landscape), and Jenny Isaacs (teacher at the Oraynu Children’s School and director of the Heart to Heart program).

“State of the Union”
Many of us love Israel. Many of us are concerned about Israeli politics and policies. At this program we will discuss the 2018 Nation-State Law, the expansion of settlements, Anti-Zionism and/as Antisemitism (when it is, when it isn’t, how do you know?), the recent elections and more!


We’ll also have delicious Israeli snacks on hand to keep  us going. And, of course, Israeli songs with Mickey!  Don’t miss this opportunity to learn, to share, and to nosh! But please bring your own hot beverage!
