Beth El’s congregational theme for 5778 is Israel.

This speech by the President of Israel in 2015 lays out some of the complex internal challenges Israelis must face moving forward.  Looking inward, he lays out the diverse pulls from different streams of Israel’s citizens – secular, modern orthodox Jewish, ultra orthodox Jewish and Arab citizens both Muslim and Christian.

Of course there are significant external threats to Israel as well which will be explored in other forum this year.

This speech will prompt our discussion for the Yom Kippur afternoon session.
