JEWS WITHIN: JEWS WITHOUT
Examining Jewish Identity
We invite you to learn, discuss, schmooze, sing, view and enjoy the opportunity to be with the Melton community across the continent. The theme for the weekend will be Jews Within: Jews Without: Examining Jewish Identity,
led by our own beloved and talented Haim Aronovitz, Director of Israel Seminars. Our featured presenter is
Dr. Hal Lewis, president and CEO of Spertus/A Center for Jewish Learning & Culture, who will be joined by
Dr. Yonatan Mirvis, FMAMS International Director, and Judy Mars Kupchan, FMAMS North American Director.
The theme will inspire our study and exploration of the cultural and religious borders which have
kept us a people apart, but may well endanger our future.

Together we will examine:
- In study sessions: What's the Place of Time? What's the Place of Place? Who draws the boundaries?
Yummy Shabbat meals and more: What makes a meal "Jewish"? The food? The company? The conversation?
In panel discussions: Is Israel making Jewish identity any easier?
In group discussions: Does the past dictate the future?
