Adult Education: A Pathway to Re-examining our Relationship with Israel/Palestine: The Brain, Memory and Collective Identity

Join the Solel Adult Torah Study Class at Bet Sefer Solel for a conversation with Solel’s own Dr. Jeffrey J. Wilkinson, who will be leading a discussion based on his research.
Abstract: Like many in the Jewish Diaspora, we are engaged, at some level, in the conversation about Israel, Zionism and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and hold a myriads of contrasting views. The focus of this discussion is not the varied opinions and debates that evolve from them, but rather a psychological and spiritual approach to how these views are formed and become cemented in our personal and collective memories. The contention of the work discussed here is that by using relevant brain research into how individual and collective (group) memory forms and stabilizes, often creating long-term consequences to our own health and limiting our views, we will be better able to widen our lens and create a broader understanding of ourselves as Jews, our Arab/Palestinian neighbours and the conflict as a whole.
