This is a sensitive topic, one we are committed to having in our passion for the Israel we dream of. The course will touch on the status and difficulty in Israel of
1) Charedim ("ultra-Orthodox")
3) Mizrachi/Sephardi Jews
4) Russian and Ethiopian Olim
5) The GLBTQ community
We will study texts, share conversations, and explore the realities confronting Israeli society in its struggle to be both Equal and Pluralistic to all its inhabitants.
