What the Media Doesn’t Tell You — Israel Town Hall
Join us for a discussion about the political climate and current events in Israel. We will focus on the importance of the connection between American Jewry and Israelis, and the unity of the Jewish people. Learn about the media coverage within Israel and how American media covers Israeli politics. Hear about the correlation between anti-Israel and antisemitism. We will have an open discussion to address the concerns of community members, with shlicha, Chen Shoval, and guest speaker Yaron Deckel.
There will be light refreshments. Please register below!
