Why Israel, Anyway?

M²: The Institute for Experiential Jewish Education
December 19, 2023

Join our partners at M2 for a webinar on the fundamental questions of Israel education with Avraham Infeld

Why does the Jewish People need the State of Israel? Is Zionism still relevant? Where does loving Israel begin and end? In these times of crisis in Israel and rising antisemitism, we are going back to these basic questions – and more. In this webinar we will hear from Avraham Infeld, President Emeritus of Hillel International and legendary Jewish educator, about the role of the State of Israel as the homeland for the extended Jewish family. Come to be inspired and provoked; come with your own questions and opinions; come to join a diverse community of Jewish educators as we tackle one of the most central and timely questions facing our learners and communities today.
