Within a very few generations the Jewish people have been transformed from being stateless to having two vibrant but different homes, in the United States, and Israel. Together and Apart is a three part series of video lectures and discussion that explores the complex and shifting relationship between American and Israeli Jews. In recent years the atmosphere of devotion and unity between our two Jewish centers has been challenged by divisions arising from nationalism, dual loyalties, antisemitism, and anti-Zionism. The sessions will explore these difficult issues and discuss ways to renew and reinforce the bonds between the Jews of Israel and America.

The video lectures are a part of the iEngage Project of the Shalom Hartman Institute, a Jewish research and education institute based in Jerusalem, Israel. The Institute offers pluralistic Jewish thought and education to scholars, rabbis, and community leaders in Israel and North America. The institute's goal is to strengthen Jewish peoplehood, identity, and pluralism, and to enhance the Jewish and democratic character of Israel.

Exploring the World of Judaism is a program of Congregation Shir Hadash and Jewish LearningWorks and is supported in party by the Newton and Rochelle Becker Charitable Trust and the Myra Reinhard Family Foundation.
