The iEngage Jewish Values and the Israeli- Palestinian Conflict curriculum explores one of the most divisive issues affecting the Jewish people today. Through the study of Jewish narratives about Israel and the unpacking of complex meanings of peace in Jewish tradition, participants are invited to explore the ideas and values that animate different attitudes toward the conflict and how these values shape their own political understandings. Though a common political platform may not be attainable, this course strives to achieve a shared respect for our differences. OC iEngage is made possible by the Rose Project of Jewish Federation & Family Services. We are grateful to the Jewish Community Foundation of Orange County and the American Jewish Committee, Orange County Chapter, for their support for this initiative.
Instructor: Rabbi Heidi Cohen & Jodi Kaufman, RJE. Cost: $72 per household, for the whole series. This cost has been subsidized by anonymous donors.
