ICJW Rosita and Esteban de Herczeg

Jerusalem Seminar for Jewish Education

Tel Aviv, Israel – May 14-17, 2017

Striving For the Highest: From Ideals to Reality in Israel

Jewish wisdom and women’s perspectives creating new possibilities

Striving towards the highest good is intrinsic to Judaism, and takes a characteristic form in shaping ideals that can transform the real world. Add to this the expanding participation of women in public life, with their distinctive concern for social justice, for community and family connection, as well as compassion and care for all aspects of the living world.

This seminar will explore the dynamic and fertile interaction between Judaism and women’s increasing contributions and perspectives, through lectures and workshops given by expert speakers, discussions and tours. Witness the ways in which Israel is a society in transformation, with many aspects shaped by the highest Judaic ideals.
