Israel Discussion Forums
Welcome to our Israel Discussion Forums, a project of Shaaray Tefila's Israel Engagement Committee. This is where congregants can voice their opinions -- online or in-person -- on what's happening in Israel, the Middle East, and other Israel-related topics that interest you.
Do you have strong opinions about the peace process? Is the press too tough on Israel? Too lenient? Want to learn more through active dialogue with fellow Temple members?
Join our in-person Discussion Forums to talk about and debate all topics related to Israel for Temple members of all ages. At each gathering, a volunteer leader will introduce a current issue and moderate the discussion. There is no specific political bias or agenda, so whatever your opinion may be, we'll make sure you are heard. And if you don't yet have strong opinions, come and shape them through informed dialogue.
Our first in-person Discussion Forum was November 21, 2011. Twenty-eight people participated in a spirited discussion on THE PALESTINIAN BID FOR STATEHOOD AT THE UN: IMPLICATIONS FOR ISRAEL. Ted Greenwood was the moderator. Additional Forums were held on December 13, February 1, 2012, March 13 and April 10.
