What does a religious Zionism look like that promotes pluralism and democracy? How might those who espouse such vision challenge the current trends in Israel? Elana Stein Hain, Rosh Beit Midrash and Senior Fellow at the Shalom Hartman Institute, will sit down with Tehila Friedman, Hartman Research Fellow, former Knesset member for the Blue and White party, and host of Hartman’s Hebrew language podcast במדינת היהודים | Bemidinat Hayehudim (In the Jewish State) to discuss how her work is galvanizing religious communities to think about these questions.
In the current Israeli government, religious Zionism is playing an ultra-nationalist and right-wing role. Is this what religious Zionism has to be? Join Elana Stein Hain for Reclaiming a Religious Zionism that Embraces Darkhei Shalom (Paths of Peace), three conversations with Israeli thought leader-activists who work for a different vision of religion and of religious Zionism.
This program is part of Ideas for Today, curated courses by Hartman Institute scholars on the big Jewish ideas we need to think better and do better.
