Chabad of West Orange Plans JLI Lectures

Join Chabad of West Orange for a Jewish Learning Institute lecture on “Israel in Perspective: Viewpoints on the Land’s Identity,” to be given on Monday, July 3, at 7:30 a.m.

The Six-Day War had a profound impact on Diaspora Jewry. In its immediate aftermath, waves of new immigrants arrived in the Jewish state, while countless others experienced a spiritual reawakening. When the euphoria wore off, however, extreme diversity in perspective and reaction emerged—toward the war, and toward the State of Israel. What are the factors underwriting this fragmentation, and how do they influence Israel’s political process today?

On Monday, July 10, at 7:30 p.m., Chabad of West Orange will host a Jewish Learning Institute lecture entitled, “A Nation That Dwells Alone: Israel’s Relations With the Family of Nations.”

One of Israel’s principal dilemmas—one that grew more acute in the aftermath of the 1967 war—is its stance toward an often hostile international community. In staggering disproportion to the size of both its land and population, Israel receives almost constant coverage in international media and foreign forums, and the majority of this coverage is highly uncomplimentary. Is the criticism and censure justifiable? Can Israel normalize its existence and affairs to the point that it will be viewed and treated as equal to other players in the international community? Join this lecture to have these and other questions answered.

For more information, email or call Rabbi Mendy Kasowitz at [email protected] or 973-325-6311. Chabad of West Orange is located at 401 Pleasant Valley Way, West Orange.
