STORIES OF ISRAEL
A journey to the heart of Israel

Sun., April 18 - Sun., April 25
The Anne Klaber Memorial L'dor Va Dor Lecture Series 

Come have an encounter with Israel unlike any other. Through personal stories, we will confront the larger issues facing Israeli and Jewish society today: Race, Gender, Religious Pluralism, Sexual Identity, Palestinian Identity, the IDF, and Immigration.

During each session, we will watch a short documentary on an Israeli personality, then a lecture about the underlying topic, followed by a live Q & A with the person from the documentary.

Sponsored by Stephen and Mona Klaber and family

Holocaust Torah Scroll

Since 1977, CSAIR has had on permanent loan from the Memorial Scrolls Trust, a Torah from the Czech region of Bohemia that survived the holocaust. We have been researching the story of this Torah and the fascinating history of the scroll and how it came to CSAIR.

Addressing Racism:  CSAIR's Next Steps

We hope to achieve greater sensitivity to and language for talking about racism but we also want to take concrete actions. We recognize that many Jews have parallel identities – one that benefits from white privilege (for those Jews who are white) and one that has a history of oppression, antisemitism. The internal work will focus on gaining a deeper understanding of this duality, both its benefits and its complications, and exploring how we can use our unique Jewish sensitivity to oppression to work against racism. We are on this journey together as a congregation. We hope to move forward thoughtfully, constructively, and with care. Whatever your knowledge base, background, or political affiliation, we are all learning together and we welcome you to join us.
