In this series of seven lectures, Rabbi Soloveichik will examine seven of the most iconic images in the history of Israel, telling the story behind each photo, and the event or person it captured. Each presentation will be offered over Zoom and will be a visual experience, pairing the image with many others, revealing largely unknown aspects in Israeli history. This, in turn, will allow us to better appreciate what it means to mark Israel’s 75th year, and to look expectantly toward its future.

This special series serves as our Congregation’s annual Spring Fundraiser and provides essential support to our Congregation.

All sessions will be livestreamed in the evenings, except for a special Yom Yerushalayim lecture, on Thursday, May 18, which will be streamed at 12:30 pm Eastern Time, 7:30 pm Israel time, so that our friends in Israel (and in Europe) can more easily join.

All sponsors will be recognized in a beautiful content-rich commemorative booklet that will be mailed out after the series.
