Visiting scholars examine Jewish identity of Jewish state
Eight religious and social leaders from Israel will visit Los Angeles synagogues May 6-7 to engage in conversation about the state of religious Zionism. The Shabbaton, hosted by Religious Zionists of Los Angeles in honor of Israel’s 63rd year of independence, will have speakers in the Pico-Robertson neighborhood and in Hancock Park on topics including “Could Zionism turn out to be another false messiah?” and “Democracy and the Jewish state: Is it possible?”
Included will be several leaders from Tzohar, an organization that seeks to connect secular Israelis to the rabbinate in a positive way through lifecycle events and educational programs.
