Beth El is thrilled to welcome Donniel Hartman, President of the Shalom Hartman Institute, as part the East Bay iEngage Collaborative Lecture Series. Donniel Hartman will examine how the notion of a one state or two state solution creates moral red lines for many inside and outside the Jewish community. He will use this notion as a jumping off point to examine how Jewish communities can interact when different moral redlines exist as well as help offer some ways to answer when and how one comes to define their moral redline. Further, he will challenge the status quo pushing for a Jewish community that takes seriously the ideas of others even when it pushes up against moral redlines.
