This will be an interactive and facilitated discussion on how we navigate a sense of connection and identity with State of Israel through the lens of Israeli and Diaspora perspectives. We will unpack our discussion in four key areas that both challenge and unify the State of Israel: Democracy, Normalization, Holiness and Guardianship. Using the model of Avraham Infeld’s 5 Legged Table of what comprises a strong and stable Jewish identity, Memory, Family, Mount Sinai, Israel and Hebrew Language, we will explore where our personal compass and identity may coincide or collide with our Jewish one and our connections with the State of Israel.
