What should Zionism look like in an era of a confident and strong Jewish state? Can the various flavors of Judaism’s enduring focus on the Land of Israel translate into a new Zionist ethos?

Join JTS, the RA, the Schechter Institutes and Ziegler for a collaborative ScholarStream series, in which teachers representing each institution will explore these and other questions—re-examining some of Zionism’s key ideas, moments, and challenges, from its earliest origins and into the 21st century. All 4 classes will take place on Wednesday evenings at 8:00 PM.

This class is sponsored by BZBI and there is no charge for attending. Use Coupon code: BZBIApr21 when you register here.
