How is the turmoil in President Trump-era Washington affecting Israel – and what’s the role of American Jews? How should American Jews navigate a political landscape that’s polarized between a right that could threaten American Jewish values and a left that’s increasingly anti-Israel?
Jonathan S. Tobin, opinion editor of JNS.org and contributor to National Review, the New York Post, Israel Hayom, Haaretz and the
Jewish Week, and J.J. Goldberg, editor-at-large of the Forward news organization and former U.S. bureau chief of the Israeli news magazine The Jerusalem Report, will debate these and other critical issues.
This program appearance has been made possible by the generosity of Gary Kahn in memory of his beloved father, SPS member Stanley Kahn.
COME STUDY PIRKEI AVOT
Study Pirkei Avot, or Ethics of the Fathers – a compilation of rabbinic teachings dealing with ethical and moral living. We will be looking at specific teachings within this collection that deal with giving respect/showing kindness to ourselves, to others, and to God, and discuss the question “how can we apply these teachings to our lives today?”
