Following the interesting conversations from our book club sessions, we will continue our learning and discussion, led by Rabbi Arnowitz, with a few podcasts.  We’ll meet Thursday evenings (June 8, 15, and 22) at 7:45pm via Zoom: https://zoom.us/j/907858576

We look forward to leaping back into our Israel discussion at this liminal moment (among so many liminal moments) in Israel’s history.

You did not have to participate in book club in order to attend this series.

We’ll use two episodes of the Hartman Institutes Podcast For Heaven’s Sake with Daniel Hartman, Yossi Klein HaLevi (who wrote the last book we used) and Elana Stein Hain. The two episodes are:
