The View from Africa: The Legacy and Outlook of South Africa's Jewish Community

South Africa, home to the largest Jewish community in Africa, is the continent’s largest economy and a leading diplomatic voice in multilateral settings. Its relationship with Israel is multilayered, problematic, and complex, yet few Jewish communities have prospered and contributed to their country as much as South Africa's Jewry on almost all imaginable fronts. Its communal life is among the richest in the Jewish diaspora, but political developments and economic decline over the last two decades have led to significant emigration, compromising its future vitality. Join Zev Krengel, Vice President and former National Chairman as well as President of South African Jewish Board of Deputies, the official umbrella organization of the Jewish community and a very dear friend of AJC, for a wide-ranging discussion. 12:30 p.m. Register at zoom.us/webinar/register/3015955314841/WN_EX8LM1p4TAujlevDf4R6lw.

Orthodox-Feminism: Conflict or Coexistence? (REMOTE)

The coexistence of Orthodoxy and feminism sounds like an oxymoron to many. However, in today’s world, there is a vibrant movement to develop the social and religious roles of women within Orthodox communities. Since the 1970s, many Orthodox women exposed to feminism and gender equality have been inspired to remain within the boundaries of Orthodoxy while working to develop a more egalitarian approach. In response, Jewish communities around the world have begun to create new and renewed space for observant women to practice rituals once reserved only for men. From 10 to 11:30 a.m. Thursdays, Aug. 6-27. Visit case.edu/lifelonglearning/courses/courses-subject/jewish-studies/orthodox-feminism-conflict-or-coexistence-remote.

CWRU Siegal Lifelong Learning After the Two-State Solution: Equality and Zionism in Israel-Palestine

A two-state solution that separates a Jewish and Palestinian state is growing ever more unlikely.

Join Peter Beinart for this important conversation, regardless of where you fall ideologically or politically. From 7 to 8 p.m. Register at case.edu/lifelonglearning/lectures/after-two-state-solution-equality-and-zionism-israel-palestine-remote.
