Upcoming Shlicha Events
Modern Tribes of Israel
Sundays, starting February 14| 8 PM
   Who do you think of when you picture an Israeli? There may be more faces for you to discover. Join Yasmin for an opportunity to learn about her favorite aspect of Israel - its diversity.
   Every week we will discuss a sector of Israeli society, some less familiar to us than others. We will use Israeli art and video media to better get to know the stereotypes surrounding each group and the people and faces within them.
What's the Meaning Behind Fauda?
Thursdays | 8 PM
January 7, January 21, February 4, February 18
   Join Shlicha Yasmin Drescher and long-time congregant Alan Zucker for a bi-weekly conversation on the critically acclaimed first season of Fauda (on Netflix). Fauda is one of Israel's most popular TV shows and has a strong following with Israelis and Palestinians.

Conversation With "Fauda" Actors
March 7 | 4 PM EST
   Join Boaz Konforty and Yaakov Zada Daniel, actors in the hit TV show “Fauda” for an unforgettable talk about their unique journeys to become actors, the significance of Jews and Arabs collaborating in the name of art, and the impact of the TV series on Arabs, Israelis, and Jews.
