Hinei Mah Tov: Israeli and American Jews' Views of Each Other: And how liberal Jewish movements in Israel have made progress, faced opposition, and cooperated.

Elan and Naamah will begin the discussion by reflecting on their shared life journeys, from the viewpoints of an Israeli and an American who met 45 years ago. They will talk about what Israel and American Jewry were like when they met, and how they saw the other in this context. Then they will talk about how things have changed over the decades that they have been together, and what were their respective roles and activities. They will also describe the progress made by both Conservative and Reform Judaism in Israel, as well as collaboration between the two movements on issues of mutual concern, including with unconventional Orthodox leaders and institutions. After the initial 45-minute joint presentation/discussion, we will divide into two breakout sessions: Naamah will discuss the renaissance and challenges of Jewish life in Israel through her work as a rabbi and the dean of Hebrew Union College. Elan will focus on issues of Jewish peoplehood, Israel-Diaspora relations and his work teaching Israelis about American Jewry.
