2017 Symposium

Temple Shalom hosted the 2nd annual Israel Today Community Symposium on August 6, 2017. More than 500 attendees from both the Jewish and non-Jewish communities learned from the Symposium’s keynote speakers the vital importance of the U.S/Israel relationship. Breakout sessions and panel discussions addressed a wide variety of topics ranging from the history of the Israeli Palestinian conflict, to Israeli politics, to combatting anti-Israel activities on college campuses. Attendees of the day-long event were rewarded with a rich update of the critical issues facing the State of Israel in a very troubled time in an unstable part of the world.
