After Birkat HaMazon Learning this Shabbat @CNS: Is Zionism “Strange Fire?"

After Birkat HaMazon Learning (approx. 1:15pm) this Shabbat (4/6) @CNSBerkeley:

Is Zionism "Strange Fire?"
with Rabbi Menachem Creditor 

·      Is the political movement we call 'Zionism' traditionally Jewish or does it represent something radically new?

·      Why did Orthodoxy and Reform Judaism reject it? How did that change?

·      What does Masorti/Conservative Judaism think? Did it always feel this way?

·      What might the Torah/Prophets/Talmud have thought?

·      What might The Jewish People (and Jewish people) learn from this conversation?
