The Zionist Salon: 
Tribes of Israel

With Heidi Schneider

Tuesday, May 14 • 7-9 pm in the Library

Our Zionist Salon is designed to further our intellectual understanding of Zionism and deepen our emotional connection to the great Jewish project of our times—the State of Israel. The Zionist Salon gives us all an opportunity to ask “what does Israel mean to me” and “what does Zionism mean to me”—to try to use these tools to build meaning in our lives - while also contributing to the Jewish People, Israel, and the world. This salon will introduce you to the diversity of Israeli cities with tribal identities.
