EVENT: Wrestling with Zionism: A Readers' Theater

Wrestling with Zionism:
A Readers' Theater

WHEN: September 27, 6-9pm
WHERE: Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture*

*The venue is partially wheelchair accessible. Access into the building from the Garden can be arranged with prior notice. There’s one step up to the bathroom.

Conversations about Israel/Palestine are often charged and challenging. Many families and friends avoid the subject to keep the peace and worry that even a slight criticism of Israel can result in being labelled anti-Semitic. We know that many people have very strong opinions on I/P, while others want to learn more.

During this evening we want to create a space where we can discuss this subject, with respect and active listening, with the aim to build relationships and understanding.

The evening will feature a Readers’ Theater wherein thirteen people with a range of backgrounds share their evolving relationships to Zionism, as well as a short video similarly featuring such personal stories. We’ll also have time for conversation and questions. Light refreshments will be served.
