How -- And Why -- is Israeli Society Changing?

In Israel, the country is divided into two segments: the strictly religious and everyone else. Non-ultra-Orthodox Jews in Israel faces a great many challenges, from women being banned from speaking from the podium at a conference on Women’s Health and Jewish Law; a 8-year-old girl deemed immodestly dressed was spat on; women have been asked to go to the back of the bus.

What role is the Reform Jewish Movement playing in the changes that are happening? How can American Reform Jews help?

Find out – from Yaron Shavit, Chairman of the Israel Movement for Progressive Judaism (IMPJ) as he presents “The Challenges of the Reform Jew in Israel and America – A Two-Way Street”

Friday, February 10 7:30 p.m. at Temple Israel,  1901 N. Flagler Drive in West Palm Beach.

Call (561) 833-8421 for more information.

This event is sponsored by Drs. Howard and Joanne Green.
