The Jewish Sabbath, Shabbat, is a day for reflection, for good conversation, and now, for finding connection when we are physically isolated. Join us for a Shabbat conversation with Rabbi Linda Holtzman and Pastor Amy Yoder McGloughlin. Rabbi Linda will begin our time by welcoming us into Shabbat, and then we’ll continue our conversation from our last webinar about Christian and Jewish Zionism and its impact on Palestine. This opportunity to talk will let us go deeply into the issues we just began to address and to share all of our stories, our feelings, and our insights into Zionism and Palestine.
