Conversations on Zionism: Yes, You Can Be a Progressive Zionist!
November 16 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree
The time has come to show the world what Zionism looks like. That Zionism comes in all colors, shapes, and sizes. That it’s inclusive, diverse, beautiful, respectful. That it builds bridges. That it’s about freedom: freedom of religion, freedom of expression, freedom from preconceived notions. That Zionism supports Israel, a country where synagogues, mosques and churches all share the same skyline. A country where Christians, Jews and Muslims live as neighbors and sit around the same table – and while they may have different views, they all have a seat.
Join Jewish National Fund-USA for a series of human interactions, short films, interviews, panel discussions and more — all meant to facilitate a dialogue and expose the beautiful and diverse facets of modern Zionism and its positive impact on many aspects of our lives.
Episode 8 panelists include Rabbi Menachem Creditor, founder, Rabbis Against Gun Violence; Representative Alma Hernandez, Arizona House of Representatives, 3rd District; Congressman Ritchie Torres, U.S. House of Representatives, New York’s 15th District; and Tremayne Smith, business management associate, JPMorgan Chase & Co. Global Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, who will be moderating the lively discussion.
