Coming Up

Our next opportunity for Adult Education will be an iEngage class through the Hartman Institute. iEngage: Jewish Values and the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict explores one of the most divisive issues affecting the Jewish people today. Through the study of Jewish narratives about Israel and the unpacking of the complex meanings of peace in the Jewish tradition, participants are invited to explore the ideas and values that animate different attitudes toward the conflict and how these values shape their own political understandings. Though a common political platform may not be attainable, this course strives to achieve a shared
respect for our differences.  The class will include, lectures, videos and reading as well as group discussions.  iEngage is a high level class and will be taught by a variety of Temple Emanuel Staff and guest teachers.  This class will be limited to 30 participants.  iEngage will meet October 24 and 31, November 7, 14 and 28, and December 5, 12, and 19.  If you have any questions, please contact Sarah Brown at brown@emanueldenver.org or 303-388-4013 ext. 305  To register please click below.
