Two of Chicago’s leading advocates for Jewish solidarity with the struggle to end Israel’s military occupation and to ensure equality, peace, and security for both Israelis and Palestinians share readings and thoughts on what it means to be a Jew. Both talk of their path to understanding that Zionism as evolved and manifest in the State of Israel is incompatible with their understanding of Judaism. They read from their own writings as well as from works by other Jewish writers. They take questions after their readings.
