Religious Pluralism 101 with Hechalutz

NIF -- New Generations Jewish Your Way presents:

        Religious Pluralism 101 with Hechalutz

What does religious pluralism look like in Israel?

What is the relationship between Judaism and democracy?

Are there any threats to religious freedom in the Jewish state today?

Join New Generations at the Moishe House for an evening of interactive learning as we explore these and other issues with Ari Levy of Hechalutz. Hechalutz is a non-profit Israeli education center dedicated to teaching Cultural Judaism and Zionism to Diaspora Jews. Hechalutz connects Diaspora Jewry to Israel by educating towards Zionist ideals of self-determination, collective and personal responsibility, democracy and justice. The center's style of education is based on dialogical learning and encourages critical thinking and the challenging of perception.

 Come for the conversation and leave with a better understanding of what religious pluralism looks like in Israel, and what the role of the American Jewish community is in ensuring that religious freedom continues to exist at the heart of Israeli society.

About Ari: Originally from Maryland, Ari made Aliyah to Israel in 2004. Since then he has dedicated his time to educational enterprises in Israeli society and Diaspora communities and developed expertise in educating about the Kibbutz Idea and the history of the Zionist Labor movement. He was a founding member of "Hechalutz" in 2009 and has been the Director ever since. Ari is a member of the Haifa Educators' Kibbutz of the "Dror Israel" movement, but still prefers to watch the Redskins over "Hapoel."
