Love, Hate and the Jewish State 4.0: Airing the Dirty Laundry?

Being critical of the status quo is an inherent part of social change – we identify problems in our world that we hope to solve or improve. But free expression of critical views of the Jewish state inside and outside of Jewish communities often meets with complicated rules against “airing our dirty laundry.”

Recent events, such as the near-revocation of Tony Kushner’s honorary doctorate degree, have shed light on the tense atmosphere around the discourse on Israel in the American Jewish community.

Join us for the fourth in a series of highly interactive, non-persuasive, open discussions with a diverse group of people in their 20s and 30s.  Followed by a reception.
