Hartman Online iEngage Course: Together & Apart – The Future of Jewish Peoplehood
Tuesday, May 12 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
An event every week that begins at 9:00 am on Tuesday, repeating until Tuesday, June 23, 2020
Classes will be held on Tuesdays from 12:00-1:30pm EDT (9:00-10:30am PDT) from April 21-June 23, 2020.
At a time when the world is contemplating how we can remain connected while we stay apart from one another, we invite you to join a global community of learners. Rabbi Lauren Berkun will be teaching the newest iEngage series, Together & Apart: The Future of Jewish Peoplehood as a 10-session online course.
Together & Apart: The Future of Jewish Peoplehood explores one of the most pressing issues facing the Jewish world today – how we move from being a people with no permanent home to one with two permanent homes.
This series addresses the complex features of Jewish peoplehood inherent in our tradition and in our history. Who are we? What does it mean to be a member of the Jewish people? And what are some of the fundamental values that this encompasses?
Over 10 online sessions, we will examine the contemporary forces challenging peoplehood, including nationalism, antisemitism, dual-loyalty, and identity politics, and imagine new conceptual frameworks that can help sustain and grow the story of our people for a new millennium.
This Hartman Online iEngage Course is led by Rabbi Lauren Berkun, Vice President of Rabbinic Initiatives at the Shalom Hartman Institute of North America.
