Music, Art, and Solidarity — Join us to learn about Israeli music and art about politics, protest, and social issues. There will be a discussion on why it is important for American Jews to pay attention to the similarities between the reasons for protests in Israel and protests in the U.S. This includes power dynamics, systemic racism and violence, and how to respond and open up to both sides of the narrative without turning away and giving up completely. Learn about how peaceful protest, dissemination of unheard voices, and art go hand in hand.
