The Israel Committee of Temple Rodef Shalom develops programmatic content that showcases Israel in ways that are informative and interesting while encouraging respectful and meaningful conversation. Temple Rodef Shalom is a member of ARZA (the Association of Reform Zionists of America) which is the Israel arm of the Reform Movement which supports equality, democracy, and pluralism in the state of Israel. For more information, please contact the Israel Committee.
The iEngage Project, developed by the Shalom Hartman Institute, is committed to addressing core questions pertaining to the necessity and significance of the Jewish national enterprise; how a Jewish state should exercise power; why a Jew who lives outside of Israel should care about Israel; and what the State of Israel can offer the world. TRS will offer one or two courses each year such as Jewish Values and the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict or Together and Apart: The Future of Jewish Peoplehood.
Under the leadership of the Israel Committee and in collaboration with clergy, programs are presented throughout the year featuring speakers on aspects of the modern state of Israel including a special Shabbat around Yom Ha’atzmaut, Israel Independence Day.
