Temple Shalom’s safe-space Israel dialogue group.
Sukkat Shalom is a unique program that was started by a small, core group of Temple Shalom members to hold facilitated discussions about Israel. We have held facilitated discussions during Kehillat Shalom events, study sessions after Yom Kippur services, and small group conversations in members’ homes.
Sukkat Shalom came about as an opportunity to provide a safe place for all types of conversations about Israel. With the help of trained moderators, Sukkat Shalom conversations aim to bring an understanding of different viewpoints – the goal is to discuss topics openly without a need to come to a consensus. We recognize support for Israel may be complicated, emotional, and takes many different forms, and we understand that many struggle with what supporting Israel means.
Be on the lookout for periodic Sukkat Shalom discussion opportunities
