Israel Salon

One Thursday per month
7:00 - 8:00 PM

This year-long endeavor is a combination of a living room learning, a traditional salon, and an Israeli cultural experience! This small-group is designed for deep conversations on a variety of Israeli topics from politics to poetry and history to Judaism. Each conversation will be made accessible through learning. Each class will begin with Israeli music and Israeli tea and coffee. It will be co-led by Rabbi Karen Thomashow and Lior Tzoref, Israeli musician and educator.
