7:00pm Dinner and Presentation
Often when we talk about Israel, we pass over the ideology that’s at the center of its existence: Zionism. What does it mean to be a Zionist? How do perspectives differ within schools of Zionist thought? What is the relationship between Judaism and Zionism? Historian and writer Gil Troy, editor of The Zionist Ideas: Visions for the Jewish Homeland—Then, Now, Tomorrow, will share his understanding of Zionism, shedding light on different historical and contemporary streams of Zionism and their impacts on present-day Israel and Jewry.
