The impact of the Shoah was felt around the world and will be felt into the future. How did this atrocity impact the modern State of Israel, how the world and United Nations views itself, and how will it shape your future?
We Love Israel,
so Why Is It so Controversial?
taught by Rabbi Brusso
Sundays, April 22, 29, May 6, 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
As we celebrate Israel’s 70th birthday, we do so at a time when the Israel story has become much more complicated than in the early years of the state. Conversations on college campuses in particular have become tricky to navigate.

In our discussions, we will ask some of the most important questions and discuss the biggest challenges Israel faces today.
This is a new registration form for just this semester that includes only four short questions. Please fill out this form even if you have registered for TLC since August 2017.
