“Israel will be redeemed only when it forms a single band: when all are united, they will receive the presence of the Shechina. Therefore Hillel said: ‘Separate not thyself from the community.’” [Tauhauma B. and Nizzahim 25A]
Focus on local, national and international connections to Israel (the place and the people) from historical and text perspectives. Emphasis on the meaning of Klal Yisrael particularly in light of the changing face of American Jewry and the changing relationship to Israel.
