What we're about

In a time of high tension in the Jewish community surrounding Israel and its relationship to the Palestinian people, we want to keep talking to each other. In this safe space, Jews can gather to ask questions and discuss issues that have not been very welcome in the Jewish community. We will explore how our culturally Jewish upbringing and family dynamics relate to Israel. How does our Jewish identity relate to Zionism, the driving political ideology behind Israel and its creation? How do we understand our relationship to Palestine and Palestinians? This is a space where we can ask/explore/discuss how each of us wants Zionism be part of our Jewish identity. We are looking for suggestions for our reading list. Possibilities include: Amy Wilentz, Martyr's Crossing (a novel), Bethlehem Road Murder, A Michael Ohayon Mystery by Batya Gur, My Promised Land by Ari Shavit, My Happiness Bears No Relation to Happiness – a biography of Taha Muhammed Ali by Adina Hoffman, or one of Adina Hoffman's own books, such as House of Windows: Portraits from a Jerusalem Neighborhood.
