Resetting the Table - Conversation about Israel

Sunday, January 12, 2020 15 Tevet 5780

2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Have you been avoiding talking about Israel lately? Wondering what it's like to broach the tough topics with people who may have different views from your own? Want to do it in a supported space with facilitators? Join as Resetting the Table comes to FTJC for a Mini Town Square event.


Israel as a land, country, and modern state is part of the fabric of Judaism. For some people, that fabric feels like a cozy sweatshirt. For others, it's scratchy like a homemade sweater or too tight, like when you put on an old jacket from your youth. Some people feel all of those things at once. Participants will have an opportunity to engage in a meaningful conversation about Israel with people who may have different views or backgrounds -- but who are all part of the FTJC community.


Members from the FTJC community are invited to participate in a discussion that is thoughtful, respectful, and substantive. Led by skilled facilitators from Resetting the Table, the Town Square forum supports participants in having open, honest, and direct conversations about Israel across differences in backgrounds and views.


This program is being sponsored by Rena and Noah Allen to mark the 1st Yahrzeit of Noah's dad, Rabbi Danny R. Allen z"l. Rabbi Allen spent his professional career devoted to the Jewish people and strengthening the State of Israel. At the time of his death he was one of, if not the, leading expert on how and where American Jewish Philanthropic dollars were spent in Israel. 


Space is limited for this program. By registering, you are committing to attend. Registration will close on January 3rd.  For questions please contact
