Israel Connections and Education

As Reconstructionists we acknowledge the centrality of Israel in Judaism, and consider connecting to the State of Israel as a value for us at Congregation Darchei Noam.

Our Israeli cultural programming includes:

  • annual Yom Ha’atzmaut celebrations
  • weekly articles on Israeli personalities, innovations, and society
  • monthly Israeli folk-dancing
  • Kolot Noam, a recreational singing group dedicated to Israeli music
  • Israeli movie nights
  • an Israeli book group

Our Israel Education programming aims to provide high quality educational programming on Israel. For example, a recent three-part series of talks on the 2013 Israeli elections, covered:

  • the Israeli electoral system
  • the political parties and their campaigns
  • the coalition
