This session with Mijal Bitton explores the tensions between creating communities of belonging that are still boundaried. In a membership model community, what does it mean to belong? How do we navigate the tensions between building communities that are inclusive and preserving a core set of commitments that may serve to exclude? How do we create space for a plurality of views on Israel and American politics? What moral issues arise as a result of defining communal boundaries, intentionally or unintentionally, that exclude some groups or individuals?
