"Aligning our Commitment to Racial Justice and Zionism"
As Reform Jews committed to protecting and advancing civil rights and racial justice at home, and as progressive Zionists passionate about addressing racism in Israel, how do we express these values in today’s political environment? How can we best be allies with directly impacted communities? As a multi-racial movement, how can Reform Judaism ensure that all voices are heard? And what lessons can North American and Israeli Reform and Progressive Jews learn from one another in the struggle against racism? Learn with four of our movement’s most dynamic teachers who are on the front lines of fighting racism and promoting civil rights.

Project Rozana: Using Healthcare to Build Bridges in the Middle East
Regardless of their views on Israel, Reform Jews seek meaningful ways to engage with the land and her people. Project Rozana places Palestinian health professionals in Israeli medical institutions to serve local communities; transports Palestinians, mostly children, to appointments at Israeli hospitals; and directly supports the treatment of Palestinians in Israeli hospitals. Participants in this session will consider how Israel’s health sector is a bridge to peace, ways in which the Reform Movement is building relationships between Israelis and Palestinians, and how individuals can support this worthy endeavor.
Saturday, December 14th, 8:30 AM - Anat Hoffman
How is life like strawberries?
Two hit songs, both of which were called "Tutim" (Strawberries), rocked Israel in 1992 and in 2016. Both became enormous hits and were declared songs of the year by Israel’s most popular radio stations. Has the strawberry replaced the pomegranate as the quintessential fruit of Israel? What do these hit songs teach us about how Israelis relate to their political and economic reality? This presentation about life in Israel is upbeat, original, colorful—and tasty.

Two sessions at the Biennial Extension:
1) IMPJ: Building and Growing Reform Judaism in Israel
2) Your Voice in Israel: Mobilizing our Movement to Make an Impact
The upcoming elections for the World Zionist Congress are an opportunity for Reform Jews to make an impact in Israel and help shape global Jewish priorities. A strong turnout from the North American Reform movement will have a direct impact in growing our Movement in Israel and will work to create a more just and equitable Israeli society for both Jews and non-Jews. This is the only democratic opportunity the we, in North America, have to take an active role in helping to build the Israeli society that we want to see.
This symposium will help you drive election turnout in your congregation and is open to all. Lay-clergy and lay-professional teams are strongly encouraged to attend.
