“Machaneh Yehuda” - since physical travel to Israel is limited these days, we will go on a virtual tasting tour to see the sights, smell the smells, hear the sounds, and meet some of the people in Jerusalem’s Shuk Machaneh Yehudah, one of the world’s most popular markets and a Mecca for foodies. 

December 17, 1:00 PM - 2:15 PM

“Dilemmas of Majority - Minority Relations in Judea and their Impact on Israel Today” - Our national anthem, Hatikva, refers to our “Two Thousand Year Hope” to return to the Land of Israel from exile. Now that we have, how do we look at our past - and in particular, the Hellenistic and Roman Periods, when we were last independent - to mold our present reality. This virtual tour will explore sites in Israel, including Masada, Tzippori, and others to learn how relations with the larger superpower affected Judaism, and will see how that same question challenges contemporary Israel.
