The Plague of/and Israeli Politics
Monday, April 27 at 12:30pm
Shari Robins and Rabbi Aaron Brusso
Beloved Bet Torah Israeli tour guide Shari Robins will join us from Jerusalem to talk about recent political developments in Israel in the wake of the formation of a unity government and how pandemic is playing out in a society that is simultaneously highly opinionated and individualistic and capable of mobilizing for large national efforts.
During our session we will have the opportunity to participate in the memorial day siren LIVE and stand to honor those Israelis that gave their life in defense of the state and the people of Israel.
