Three Part Virtual Mini-Series:
“Progressive”, “Liberal” “Zionist”, these are terms that we hear and use every day, but do we really know what they mean? How do they interface with each other? Are they contradictory? Is there overlap between them? We have put together this seminar to help open a conversation to explore the terms and to begin to answer some of these questions.
On the one hand, the IDF is the most powerful army in the region and opportunities abound for Israel to expand its influence. At the same time, several significant threats – from Iran, Hezbollah and the consequences of the Arab Spring, provide significant challenges to Israel. This session looks at these challenges and opportunities.
This 3-part series is aimed at teaching participants about how to engage in “good controversy,” with Israel as the subject for discussion. We will discuss and model how to “argue for the sake of Heaven” in a society where “yes, and” and “safe spaces” are the norm. In this workshop, we will teach our signature framework for understanding disagreements about Israel – the Four Hatikvah Questions. We will then help participants get more comfortable with differences of opinions, enabling them to engage in deeper, meaningful conversations. And finally, we will activate participants to practice using this framework, to help them analyse their own viewpoints to understand how they differ from other viewpoints
What does it mean “to be a free nation in our land?” This mini series will be a deep dive into the penultimate line of the Hatikva.
