Lunch & Learn Monthly - December 2022

Israel Book Club, Part 1
Can We Talk About Israel: A Guide for the Curious, Confused, and Conflicted, by Daniel Sokatch
Discussion with Rabbi Marks



Can We Talk About Israel is the story of that conflict, and of why so many people feel so strongly about it without actually understanding it very well at all. It is an attempt to grapple with a century-long struggle between two peoples that both perceive themselves as (and indeed are) victims. And it's an attempt to explain why Israel (and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict) inspires such extreme feelings-why it seems like Israel is the answer to “what is wrong with the world” for half the people in it, and “what is right with the world” for the other half. As Sokatch asks, is there any other topic about which so many intelligent, educated and sophisticated people express such strongly and passionately held convictions, and about which they actually know so little?
