Am, Eretz, Medinah: The people, land and State of Israel
Hadar College Winter Learning Seminar 2013
Amidst all the talk and debate about Israel, come to Hadar to discover honest, serious, and thought-provoking Torah about Israel - the land, the people, and the State.
Rethink the meaning of kedushat ha-aretz and embrace the questions that contemporary Jewish life in Israel sharpens: particularism, messianism and power. Learn what the voices of Talmud and Mahshavah, Halakhah, Aggadah and Tefilah contribute to these timely and timeless questions.
Yeshivat Hadar embraces the State of Israel as a central component of the contemporary experience of being Jewish, wherever in the world one lives, insisting that our relationships with Israel be honest, compassionate, and reflective of a very broad spectrum of political views. Our learning and discussion during the Israel seminar will be framed by these commitments.
For a taste of the Torah you'll learn at Hadar, you can read this op-ed by Hadar faculty member R' Jason Rubenstein.
Come for one or both sessions. Each week will be unique, and can be taken either on its own or in combination with the other. Those who attend both sessions can receive three college credits.
One day - Wednesday January 9 - is an open, self-contained public day of study entitled "Between Israel and the Diaspora". You can find full information on it, and sign up, at http://israelyomiyun.eventbrite.com/.
Is It For Me? If you’re thirsty for the wisdom and perspective Torah offers on Israel in all its complexity, excited about a taste of egalitarian yeshiva life, and over 18: yes.
