ISRAEL: ONE LAND, MANY NARRATIVES
On March 29, April 5 and 12, our Open Beit Midrash continues with this year’s final course, taught by Professor Lisa Grant.
Creating a national Israeli culture has been an ongoing part of the project of State-building since the early days the modern Zionist movement. We will explore how popular culture serves as a way into engaging issues of identity and meaning. We will use music, art and poetry as lenses into three major themes that are in dynamic tension in contemporary Israeli society: 1) Israel and Diaspora; 2) The Hero and Every person and 3) Power and Responsibility.
