Zionism

This series is sponsored by Unpacking Israeli History.

For longer than we could remember, the story of Judaism has been wrapped up with the story of Zion. Our national narrative(s) circle our journeys to and from the homeland, and the impact of Zion has marked much of our literature, life, and dreams. This month, we are exploring this relationship, and considering where Israel is today, where it was, and where we find ourselves in relation to our homeland. 

Central Questions 

  • Media and Meaning: How do we, and how should we, read positive and negative media about Israel? 
  • Jewish Law and the State: What relationship does, and should, the state of Israel have with Halacha? 
  • Israel in Past and Present: How does the story of the Jewish state impact life there today, and what do you need to know to live in Israel?
