Bet Midrash Solel – Rabbi Englander’s Annual Course

Session 1 of 6: Israeli Culture Through the Arts.
In addition to being the Jewish State, Israel has also produced a lively culture of its own. Yossi Klein-Halevy has said that “to understand Israel, you have to listen to its soundtrack.” We shall listen to some contemporary Israeli singers and songwriters and read some fascinating Israeli poetry and literature. English translation will be provided.
In particular, we’ll discuss:
  • How secular Israeli musicians and authors are introducing Jewish religious themes into their work.
  • The long history of Israeli protest songs and poetry.
  • The “Mizrachi Revolution” in Israeli culture.
This will give us a window into Israeli cultural life and will draw us even closer to Israel’s land and people!
Held at Bet Sefer Solel, 5180 Fallingbrook Drive, Mississauga. Subsequent sessions will be held April 5, 19, 26, May 3 and 10.
