SPRINGFIELD – Sinai Temple will present iEngage, Video and Conversation
with Rabbi Mark Shapiro on Wednesday evenings at 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 13, 27; March 6, 20; and April 3.
The sessions will “Reimagine our Relationship with Israel ” and ask questions like: What happens when previously powerless Jews become Jews with power and a country of their own? What happens when Jews with power make war or establish a democracy? Who defines what Judaism means when Jews run their own country? Why should American Jews care?
Each session will begin with a 20-minute video featuring scholars from the Hartman Institute in Jerusalem. The film will be followed by an opportunity to read texts (both ancient and modern) that shed light on the session’s challenges. Lively discussion will fill out the program. Pre-registration and a $20 fee are necessary to order your sourcebook. Send your check today to the Temple office or register and pay through the website. www.sinai-temple.org
Partial funding for this program is provided by the Anna P. Housen Israel Desk, a division of the Jewish Federation of Western Massachusetts, Inc.
