WORDS TO ACTION: Learning about Israel and anti-Israel Bias, November 19
November 19, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
ADL invites you to participate in community learning, Words to Action. We seek to empower members of the Jewish community who may intentionally avoid difficult conversations about Israel, anti-Semitism, anti-Zionism, and how they may often blur. At the close, you will have tools to navigate sometimes tense dialogues and address emotional responses to Israel and how it impacts you. Words to Action is a facilitated, interactive learning program, addressing a pressing need in our community to talk about Israel with nuance and empathy. The program gives participants a chance to validate their own emotions and views while cultivating understanding for the views of others. Participation is limited to 30 per session.
Sign up for one of two available sessions no later than November 16, 2017 to Karen Aroesty, firstname.lastname@example.org. Program date: Sunday, November 19, 2017, The Regional Arts Commission, Conference Room C, 6128 Delmar Boulevard, in The Loop.
Session 1: 9 am – Noon
Session 2: 1 pm – 4 pm
