This 6 session study program, a project of the Shalom Hartman Institute, empowers Christians to have a robust experience in learning about Israel in its complexity while bringing Christian theology and values into the conversation. Building on values that Christians share with Jews by virtue of being God’s people, the project offers new language and approaches for issues that have been contentious within churches and between Christians and Jews. Participants work with texts, ideas, images, fellow learners and leaders to explore Israel – as a state, as a people, as a nation and as a land – and to clarify the commitment of Christians to work for justice and peace among Jews and Palestinians.
Sundays at 9:45am in the Faith & Issues class (room 125) for 6 weeks beginning January 4th
Led by Kathy Dobbins and Richard Swindle
