Beit Midrash

Beit Midrash “The Poetry of Modern Israel” with Orly Dabush Nitzan, begins tonight
Tuesday, March 17, we begin “The Poetry of Modern Israel” with Orly Dabush Nitzan. This course will focus on Hebrew poetry written in Israel since the early 1950’s. As mirrors of the spirit of this period, the selected poems will teach us about changes in Israeli society as a whole, and in the lives of individuals. Students will encounter the poems of David Avidan, Yehuda Amichai, Dalia Rabikovitch, and others. Class discussions will especially explore three themes: relationship to the land of Israel, relationship with God, and contemporary women’s issues.
Orly Dabush Nitzan is the first community shlicha (Israeli emissary) for Brownstone Brooklyn. In this role, she helps to create deeper levels of engagement with Israel both within the Jewish community and in broader Brooklyn. She has been actively involved in the struggle for social justice in Israel. A lawyer and educator based in Tel Aviv, Orly has been the director of Neve Schechter and the chair of Shacharit-Creating Common Cause (an organization dedicated to creating a flourishing, sustainable Israel).
PLEASE NOTE SCHEDULE CHANGE: There will be NO Beit Midrash on Tuesday, March 31 and Tuesday, April 7. The third and final session of this mini-course will be held after Passover, on Monday April 13, at 7:30 P.M. (no dinner that evening).

Recently, Kane Street Synagogue was selected to participate in a Jewish Greening Fellowship (JGF) for 2013–14. JGF is an 18-month environmental leadership program offered by the Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center with the support of UJA-Federation of New York. The program, which will begin in February, aims to “cultivate environmental change leadership, reduce the environmental impacts of Jewish organizations in the New York area, and generate meaningful responses to global climate change while strengthening Jewish Life.” Kane Street’s JGF will be implemented by a Staff Fellow (Rabbi Val) and a Board Fellow (Ariel Krasnow), with commitments from our Senior Leader (Rabbi Sam), and Lay leaders (our Board of Trustees). To learn more or to actively participate in the programming, please contact Rabbi Val or Ariel music torrent
