Celebrating Yom Ha’atzmaut: The Meanings of Israel for Diaspora Jews
What are the multiple ways that Diaspora Jews understand Zionism, and how does this diversity foster conflict and opportunity within the Jewish community?

Rabbis Lauren Berkun and  Elliot Cosgrove explore the complexity of the relationship with Israel for Diaspora Jews today. What are the multiple ways that Diaspora Jews understand the meaning of Zionism, and how does this diversity foster conflict and opportunity within the Jewish community?

This session also confronts the challenge of competing values, giving both presenters and participants an opportunity to dialogue about the ways in which we can craft a nuanced, multifaceted relationship with Israel.

This program was part of Meaning + Milestones: Spring Days of Learning, two days of global learning, ritual, and commemoration that reimagine and reflect on Yom HaShoah and celebrate Yom Ha’atzmaut, both days of meaning and milestones in North America and Israel.
