Community Scholar Program
The North of Israel - the Tzaffon - embodies the Matzpun, the very consciousness or essence, of the Israel story.
Join us as for a brown bag lunch event with Shalom Orzach who will provide vignettes that demonstrate some of the core events and ideas related to the North of Israel that continue to inform our understanding of the purpose of the enterprise called Israel.
RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to attend.
