How to Celebrate Israel Without Turning Your Brain Off

Robbie Gringras

Sunday 4:20 PM–5:35 PM Dutchess Canceled, sorry

Identity & Responsibility, Israel

What are we talking about – the birthday party of that old auntie who annoys everyone and we hardly know? An opportunity for the community to white-wash all its divisions with flags and falafel? Or a massive opportunity to mark, celebrate, and deeply question the place of Israel in our lives? We’ll be digging into various comparisons and examining a few suggestions – your opinion is needed!
