ALEPH: The Institute of Jewish Ideas, a community-wide Jewish learning initiative, will offer a series of presentations from expert speakers about the Land of Israel in Jewish Thought, beginning February 15 - March 28. The hybrid series, offered at the Mandell Jewish Community Center and on Zoom, will explore the evolution of the Land of Israel in Jewish thought from the Bible to the teachings of the Rabbis, the place of the Land in the Jewish imagination in the medieval period, and its evolution in religious, cultural, and political terms in the modern period.

Sponsor: Mandell JCC; UConn Judaic Studies, Jewish Federation & a host of local Jewish institutions & synagogues.
