Topic: Connections to the Land
The core Zionist narrative of Israel presents an unbroken, unwavering connection between the people of Israel and its land. True as it is, individuals have felt at times doubts, pain, and critique as they were articulating their particular attachment to it. In this learning session, we’ll look at works by Yitzhak Shalev, Rachel Korazim, Nathan Alterman, Yehuda Amichai, Ephraim Kishon, Balfour Hakak, and Amos Oz.

About Dr. Rachel Korazim: Dr. Korazim is a freelance Jewish education consultant in curriculum development for Israel and Holocaust education. She engages audiences worldwide through innovative presentations built around the stories, poems, and songs of Israel’s best writers. Her thought-provoking talks open a window into Israeli society, inviting listeners to engage with the country and its history in new ways. She teaches at Israel’s well-known learning centers such as Pardes and the Shalom Hartman Institutes as well as in numerous Jewish communities worldwide.

This program is in partnership with Jewish Federation of St. Louis’s Sh’ma Listen! Speaker Series and is made possible by Temple Israel’s Daniel & Bella Woolf Fund, in memory of Bella Woolf.
