Do you have questions about Israel? Do you wish you knew more about its history and the history of the Arab-Israeli conflict? Do you seek a supportive space to learn and talk about Israel during this difficult time?

Join Rabbi Sam and other members of Kerem Shalom for a Read-and-Reflect discussion group, on the popular book Israel: A Simple Guide to the Most Misunderstood Country on Earth, by Noa Tishby.

Together we will deepen our understanding of Israel’s story, wrestle with divergent narratives, and––most importantly––help one another move through this painful time in Jewish history. Discussions will take place on Wednesday evenings, on Zoom, for six sessions, and participants are expected to arrive ready to share a passage that stood out to them from the assigned reading (two chapters per week).

Guidelines for conversation will be distributed prior the first session. A limited number of copies of the book will be made available in the Kerem Shalom library for registered participants to borrow.
