 2018 Trachtenberg Lecture

Friday, October 12
Dinner: 6-8 PM ET
Trachtenberg Lecture Shabbat Service: 8-9 PM ET 
 
From the earliest days of the State of Israel, American Jews have been concerned about the nature and direction of Israeli society. With the publication of The Fragile Dialogue: New Voices of Liberal Zionism, the Reform Movement has shown a new set of concerns; primarily, the inability of North American Jews to have civil, meaningful conversations about our varying opinions on the contemporary State of Israel.
 
Presented by the co-editor of The Fragile Dialogue, this year's Trachtenberg Lecture will explore how, together, we can bridge gaps and heal wounds in our communities through ongoing conversation.                 
 
Copies of The Fragile Dialogue will be available for purchase.

Sweet Tastes of Torah is an annual evening of study, discussion, learning, and fun sponsored by the North Jersey Board of Rabbis. This year's Keynote Speaker is Rabbi Josh Weinberg, president of ARZA and author of "Is There a Common Ground?", an essay that addresses bridging the gap between North American Jews and Israel that is featured in The Fragile Dialogue: New Voices in Liberal Zionism (CCAR Press, 2018).
 
The Fragile Dialogue wrestles with and attempts to frame the discourse surrounding Zionism and Israel in the 21st Century Progressive Jewish Community.
