Join AZM Chicago for “Zionism: Seven Questions, “a text-based discussion series in seven parts that explores the diverse writings and speeches of major Zionist thinkers in the pre-State era, 1840-1948. From Herzl to Ha’am, Rav Kook to Ber Borochov, Brandeis to Jabotinsky to Ben-Gurion and more, we will journey through this century of Zionist thought in all its complexity.
Based on chevruta-style learning, in which students gather in pairs or groups to discuss shared texts, the program provides an opportunity for participants to learn from the thinkers themselves and from each other in an engaging and open-minded environment. If you have some knowledge of Israel’s past and present but want to take your understanding to the next level, this program is for you.
Sessions will meet on Thursday nights from 6:30-8:00 PM in the Lakeview neighborhood of Chicago, starting Thursday, March 8, 2012.
Each session is $5; dates and session topics are listed below. You can sign up for as many individual sessions as you want; or sign up for all seven and pay only $25 – a $10 savings! It will be possible to sign up for additional sessions as the series goes on.
To participate, please provide your name and email address using the registration form below, and indicate the sessions you plan to attend. We will email you with the exact address for the sessions along with reading materials.
We look forward to learning with you! Register now.
