An educational toolkit for Yom Ha'atzmaut
New Educational Programs for Yom HaAtzmaut:
In honor of Israel’s 62nd anniversary, MERCAZ USA is proud to announce the publication of “Across the Aisle”, a dramatization of Zionist issues. Produced in cooperation with the American Zionist Movement, the program is ideal for use in synagogue services, high school and adult education classrooms. Click here for the new script by Rabbi Robert Binder which raises important questions as to the changing and enduring meaning of Zionism over the past 110+ years since the First Zionist Congress.
Also available for use is the study material on the ecological issues facing Israel, produced by MERCAZ USA and the Green Zionist Alliance, at http://www.greenzionism.org/resources/yom-haatzmaut .
The Green Zionist Alliance and MERCAZ USA gratefully acknowledge the work of MERCAZ Olami, the international Zionist organization of the Conservative/Masorti Movement, and Masorti Olami - World Council of Conservative/Masorti Synagogues for their assistance gathering materials and resources on environmental conservation and activism from a Jewish perspective. The entire CD, entitled "Judaism and the Environment," can be accessed here.
