“The nationalism of the Zionist is not a substitute for religion, but rather a religious transcendence.”
- Dr. Micah Goodman
Join us on Thursday, June 23, 2016 from 10:00 am - 1:00 pm at HUC-JIR/New York (One West Fourth Street) for "Religious Zionism for Today’s Diaspora Liberal Religious Jew," featuring Rabbi Yehoyadah Amir, HUC-JIR Jerusalem; Rabbi Josh Weinberg, President, ARZA; and Rabbi Reuven Greenvald, HUC-JIR/JTS. Lunch will be provided.
For many Jews in the Diaspora a connection to Israel and the Zionist enterprise comes through a religious Jewish approach – largely developed through involvement in synagogue, summer camp, and visits to Israel through a religious Jewish movement (ie, Reform, Conservative, Reconstructionist). This morning will afford us an opportunity for a high-level exploration of both the religious foundations of Zionism and how those of the contemporary generation might use religious language to approach Zionism.
Please RSVP by June 16, 2016 to Rabbi Josh Weinberg at firstname.lastname@example.org.
