On Tuesday, Feb. 24 at 7:30 p.m., Temple Sinai of Roslyn will host a lecture by world-renowned Israeli scholar and Jewish educator Dr. Rachel Korazim. Korazim will discuss the changing narratives of Israel-Diaspora relations. Reflecting on a century of Jewish and Zionist history, Korazim will explore how Israel is seen in the eyes of Jews around the world as well as how the Diaspora is viewed in Israel.
Learn how the narratives are changing and how Israel is now poised to explore its deepening and changing relationship with the worldwide community.
In her address, Korazim will also explore how Israel, now more than 65 years old, is ready to explore more mature and age-appropriate relations with Jewish communities overseas.
On a recent trip to Israel, a group of Temple Sinai congregants led by Rabbi Michael White, heard Korazim speak about Israeli society.
“Rachel Korazim is one of the most compelling, funny, engaging speakers on Israel and Zionism I have ever heard. You will be inspired by her presentation,” said Rabbi White.
The entire community is welcome to the event to learn from this engaging and humorous lecturer. There is no charge to attend. The lecture’s snow date is Tuesday, March 3, also at 7:30 p.m.
