Here's what happens when 1,400 Reform Jewish teens, young adults, and congregational leaders come together.



Review the presentation: Religion and State in Israel

Consider these 6 questions:

  • What does it mean to be Jewish in the Jewish State? Is Israel a Jewish State or a State of Jews?
  • What would you suggest to the Reform movement in Israel to help overcome some of its challenges?
  • Should religion and state be separated in Israel similar to the Jeffersonian model set up in the United States?
  • In which elements of religious life should the government have a role?
  • Is Judaism compatible with democracy?
  • What is more important – obtaining full recognition by the Israeli government for the Reform movement or a complete separation of religion and state where the government does not recognize any religious movements.
