American Jews and Israel: A Discussion of Connection
January 21, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$18
About This Panel Event: The relationship between American Jews and Israel is not like it once was. Tensions between identity and solidarity, peace and politics, and technology and tradition have driven wedges into what was once thought to be an unshakeable relationship. But is all lost? In this lively panel, the panelists will discuss the current state of the American/Israeli relationship, the next phase(s) of Zionism, and how American Jews and their Israeli counterparts can start to heal and understand each other’s stories.
Panelists: Rabbi John Linder of Temple Solel, Leib Bolel of the Arizona Israel Technology Alliance, and Professor Daniel Stein Kokin, Visiting Scholar, ASU.
Facilitated by Deb Rochford of Jewish National Fund of Arizona.
