WE DECLARE

Sunday, February 25, 2018 2:00–5:00 pm at the Mayerson JCC

The first two words of Israel’s Declaration of Independence are “We Declare.” Join us for a special event featuring a renowned Israeli thinker who will reflect on the meaning of the Declaration today, 70 years after it was originally proclaimed. We will offer simultaneous interpretations facilitated by Cincinnati Jewish community leaders. The afternoon will culminate with a dramatic, celebratory public reading of the document, perhaps with an Israeli twist. Presented in partnership with HUC-JIR and the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati.
