This VIRTUAL program is sponsored by our Adult Education Committee.

Speaker: Shy Askenazi, Senior Community Shaliach for the Pozez JCC of Northern Virginia

Eretz Yisrael has always been a pillar of Jewish life, a Jewish center, and a place of aspiration. How was this connection formed and re-formed throughout time? How does this connection play a part in Diaspora Jewry lives, and where does tension come in? In this session we will explore these questions, and more, through a theory of five "landscapes" of Israel.
