Taught by Rabbi Michael Siegel and Nurit Rajstein.

Encounter Israeli society through the pens of Israel’s leading writers, discovering voices that are original, contemporary, and honest. This 8 part course takes you on a literary journey offering a fresh and fascinating examination of Israeli society since the birth of the State in 1948.  Together, learners will read poetry and prose that is challenging and self-critical, gaining great insights into the Israeli national psyche through written reflections on Israel’s mythical origins. Sharing literary insights is a joy of this highly interactive course, throughout which learners will interpret, analyze, and simply appreciate the works of well-known and lesser- known Israeli authors, such as Yehuda Amichai, Dalia Ravikovitch and Amos Oz, whose words paint a multidimensional picture of a proud nation.
