Dialogue for Understanding with Resetting the Table

Following the horrors of Hamas terror attacks in Israel on October 7, the onset of the Israel-Hamas war resulting in ongoing, tragic loss of life and suffering in Israel and Gaza, and the subsequent rise in tensions on campus, Jewish students from a range of backgrounds and political orientations have reported feeling uncomfortable within and sometimes alienated from their Jewish campus communities. In response to Jewish students’ sense of disconnection from one another, we’re offering this program to help you see and hear each other in a healthy setting.

Berkeley Hillel aims to genuinely and whole-heartedly welcome all kinds of Jewish students to show up exactly as they are to engage in dialogue with each other. Preparing for Passover, a season of radical welcoming, is the perfect time to do this.

Please join us on April 21st, from 12:30-3pm, as we discuss these questions led by expert facilitators from Resetting the Table:

  • Our Community and Israel: For you, how have recent events impacted your relationship with Hillel and the Jewish community on campus? Is there a personal experience you could share that illustrates how you relate to this question?

  • Roles and Responsibilities: What, if any, do you see as the roles and responsibilities of American Jews with respect to Israel? Is there a personal experience you could share that illustrates how you relate to this question?

RSVP to reserve your space by April 15th. Lunch will be provided.
