Dr. Micah Goodman, author of Catch 67 and a leading voice in Judaism, Zionism, the Bible, and the challenges and opportunities facing Israel and contemporary world Jewry, will launch the iEngage program with this community conversation. iEngage: Jewish Values and the Israeli-Palestinian Conﬂict, a program of the Sholom Hartman Institute, explores one of the most divisive issues affecting the Jewish people today.
Through the study of Jewish narratives about Israel and the unpacking of the complex meanings of peace in the Jewish tradition, participants are invited to explore the ideas and values that animate different attitudes toward the conﬂict and how these values shape their own political understandings. Though a common political platform may not be attainable, this course strives to achieve a shared respect for our differences. The series launch, led by Dr. Goodman, will dive into some of the themes of the course and open the discussion to the community.
