Jewish Values and the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

Wednesdays starting October 19

12:00 noon to 1:00pm    Learning Center

Our weekly Lunch and Learn program with Rabbi Paley is an exciting opportunity to engage in conversation with other learners and with Jewish texts concerning important and timely issues.  This year we will be examining a learning series from the Shalom Hartman Institute entitled “Jewish Values and the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict”. This study opportunity, a combination of video lectures, text study and lively debate, will hopefully work to shape the way we think and talk about the Israel-Palestinian conflict. Focusing on values and ideas that lie at the foundation of our political views will aid us in fostering greater understanding and respect for each other.

Bring your lunch and enjoy a lively discussion.




Our Judaica Study group explores books that are of particular interest to people well-versed in Judaica and who want to discuss ideas that expand their knowledge. Group members select the books and serve as discussion leaders.  Discussions of one book often span several sessions. Topics range from discussing Who Wrote the Bible to exploring the Reform Responsa (rabbinical rulings and opinions) and much more.

Judaica Study meets every other Saturday from 9:00am to 10:00am.  Everyone is welcome.  For more information please contact Mark Fisher at dallasfish@aol.com.
