Sana Knaneh  Judith Elkan 

Blue 33

Projects include: The Narrative Project, Young Ambassadors for Peace, Women’s Groups and Classroom Dialogues. Come to hear how these projects affect Israeli and Palestinian societies.

Israeli society through the lens of cinema

Eric Goldman 

Orange 13

Israeli movies provide an intimate insight into Israel’s birth, growth and development as a country. The cinema provides an ideal “lens” by which we gain a greater understanding of Israel’s history, culture and the challenges to its existence. We will examine the changing nature of Israeli society as reflected through its cinema.

The spy next door

Edwin Shuker 

Red 4

The inside story of one of the most daring and successful intelligence operations in the history of the state of Israel. Collated and illustrated account of the capture of an intact warplane that helped Israel win the Six Day War in 1967. Sensational and unmissable.

From survival mode to a leadership mode!

Lior Kaminetsky 

Orange 12

Join us for discussion about new perceptions, relevant to living in a small Orthodox Jewish community. Why don't the Jews come to Shul? How can we make our community thrive? What should be the balance between protecting our Orthodox community and creating an inclusive environment? What should be the attitude towards the general outside community?

Why laughter is the best medicine? (2 of 2)

Vanessa Abraham 

Red 6

Laugh to wake-up, laugh after a break up. Laughter is the best makeup. Laughter is good for the soul, come on a journey and explore the benefits of laughter with Vanessa.

Theatre and antisemitism

Stephen Laughton 

Orange 11

In a time of rising anti-Semitism are we seeing theatre, and worse, attitudes, that could be considered, anti-Semitic? In the session, we'll be talking about themes including: - funding - publicity - censorship - abuse - the conflation between the Israel conflict and diaspora Jews - anti-Semitic texts - BDS

Limmud Beit Midrash Tisch

Beit Midrash Chevrah 

Purple 31

Come join the Limmud Beit Midrash team to sing, drink, snack, share words of Torah and reflect on your festival experience. Everyone's welcome, no matter how much or how little time you spent in the Beit Midrash. There will be an opportunity to stay on longer singing for those who wish.

Ideological trends in the Arab world and implications for Israel

Sarah Feuer 

Red 5

With the ostensible failure of political Islam to take hold in the post-Spring Arab world, and Arab nationalism long since discredited, there does not seem to be a dominant ideological trend unifying the Middle East today. This session will explore the prospects of a new "ism" emerging in the region and discuss implications for Israel.
