Hadassah's Defining Zionism in the 21st Century
is proud to present:
Feminism & Zionism: Exploring Recent Tensions
Thursday, June 8 at 7:00 pm
Town & Village Synagogue
334 E 14th St, New York, NY
In a March New York Times op-ed, Bustle's Emily Shire posed the question: "Does Feminism Have Room for Zionists?" One Women's March organizer, Linda Sarsour, responded in the Nation with a no. For many others — especially those for whom feminism and Zionism go hand in hand — the answer is a resounding yes. At Hadassah — a feminist, Zionist organization — we feel it's important to face issues in our midst, via civil dialogue.
On June 8, we're bringing together four Jewish feminists to explore this timely issue in "Zionism and Feminism: Exploring Recent Tensions," the latest installment of our Defining Zionism series. Don't miss this lively discussion about what comes next.
