Are you passionate about an Israel-related topic and want to explore it with other BJ members? Are you looking for opportunities to engage in deeper conversation with guest speakers and lecturers? Do you want to discuss Israeli culture, politics or practice your Hebrew in a small group setting? Then our new Israel Salons are meant for you!
So that our community members can encounter multiple facets of Israel, while engaging in conversation in an intimate setting, we are pleased to pilot a new format for Israel programs: The BJ Israel Salons. The Salons provide a framework for both Israel engagement AND community engagement- all programs will be initiated by our members, and will be hosted at their homes. Salons may include presentations by guest speakers, group conversations around a chosen common topic, an Israeli movie or book club, or other initiatives. We will help you contact the right speakers/facilitators, find a member to host the program and publish it among our members.
If you are interested in suggesting a program (be it a one time session or an ongoing series of meetings) or if you are interested in hosting a Salon at your home, please contact Moshe Samuels.
Sunday, March 25 | 5:00-7:00PM | Location given upon registration
