About SEE Israel

Beth El is hosting an Israel event that’s open to the whole community on Sunday, May 7th from 2 - 6 p.m. (doors open at 1:30) – SEE Israel: See*Educate*Engage. This unique Israel event will include panels, an Israel Forum, a key note speaker, kids activities, Israeli food and music, and babysitting will be available. To learn more and register see below.

2:00 – 4:00pm:

PANELS: 4 different panels focusing on issues of Israel’s technology, religious diversity, teen education, environment, lone soldiers, fight against anti-semitism, and medical research and how they impact the lives of Israelis and people all over the world for good. The panels will have representatives from major Israel organizations (see below) and will each repeat so you have the chance to catch more than one panel. The Religious Inclusion panel will be led by our own, Rabbi David Schuck, from 4:00 -5:00. (See below for more details.)

ISRAEL FORUM: The day will feature an Israel Forum, where all the participating organizations (including Untied Hatzalah, JNF, Israel Bonds, Lone Soldier Center in Memory of Michael Levin, FIDF, Stand With Us, Israel Cancer Research Fund and many more) will be on display. Check out cool equipment from United Hatzalah and learn more about all these great organizations.

PLUS: letter writing to IDF soldiers, kosher Israeli food, Israeli music (recorded, not live), kids activities including a “Field Day” of competitions plus Krav Maga, and babysitting for the youngest ones.

4:00-5:00pm:

SEE Religious Inclusion – Rabbi David Schuck will moderate a Religious Pluralism Panel with speakers from Masorti (Conservative), ARZA (Reform) and AJC's Jewish Religious Equality Coalition (multi-denominational, including Orthodox) discussing the pressing religious and civil rights issues affecting Israeli life today: prayer at the Kotel; the issues on Mikvah funding and use; conversions; funding for non-Orthodox organizations; how Israelis and American Jews can impact the fight. This is sure to be a powerful impactful part of the event.

5:00-6:00pm:

Keynote speaker, IDF Colonel (Ret) Kobi Marom, who served in special operations including rescuing Jews from the desert as part of Operation Moses and rose to become Brigade Commander for the Eastern Front in South Lebanon and the Hermon Brigade and is considered one of the leading experts on the situation along Israel’s northern border.

SEE Israel  Panels

SEE Youth - AMHSI: Alexander Muss High School In Israel: a discussion of this incredible program of study in Israel for High School students featuring a panel of students who have experienced the program. They will be talking about the program and its transformative influence on their lives. The inclusion of young people in several of the presentations is a significant part of our day's events.

SEE The People’s Army - Lone Soldiers Panel: a discussion of the phenomenon of lone solders that will include representatives from The Lone Soldier Center in memory of Michael Levin and Friends of the IDF with former lone solders attending and speaking about their experiences and its impact on their Judaism and Zionism. This is sure to be a beautiful and emotional session for attendees.

SEE Innovation - Technology and Science Panel: Several participating organizations will be presenting the work that they are doing in Israel that is impacting people in Israel and around the world. Panel will include the Israel Cancer Research Fund (they raise millions of dollars in the US each year and award grants for cancer research to Israeli researchers - an incredible story); United Hatzalah with a discussion of their technology and their life-saving emergency services both in Israel and around the world; Tikun Olam Makers who are innovators of medical and technological devices that improve the lives of the disabled.[SM1]

We think this will be a powerful impactful part of the event.
