Israel Connections: The Land. The People. The Image.
Tuesdays, January 4 (zoom), February 1 (zoom)
Featuring Shy Ashkenazi, Senior Shaliach, Pozez JCC of Northern Virginia
This course explores three important aspects of Israel: the land; the people; and the image portrayed in the media. Join Shy for an in-depth look at how we connect to the Jewish homeland in these three ways.
January Session: Who are the People of Israel? Being a state created with a foundation of local Jewish and non-Jewish populations, plus waves of immigrants, Israel is quite a diverse nation. This session explores the diversity in Israeli society and will wrestle with different parts of this evolving country.
February Session: Israel in the Media - the Image We See. Despite being a small dot on the world map, Israel is the most reported place in the world news. We will tackle several hard questions in this session… How is Israel perceived by the mainstream media in the US nowadays? What is the role of interpreters in this perception? How does it appear on social media? And the most important question, how does the portrayed image impact the way Israelis see their country and themselves? Discover why and how the Jewish people formed and continue to maintain significant relationships with Israel.
Fee: $6/Individual Session
