Part II of Jewish Values and the Israeli Palestinian Conflict, 6 sessions of a 12-session course developed by the Shalom 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 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 class will be facilitated by Melanie Weiss - Director of Summer Programs, The Center for Small Town Jewish Life and Director of Education, Beth Israel Congregation - Waterville, and includes readings, group discussion and video clips of lectures and interviews of prominent thinkers, scholars and public figures. 

Advanced registration required.  Finances should not be a barrier to participation. Please contact Deena at dschoenfeld@mainejewish.org or 772-1959 to inquire about subsidized tuition.
