About

Wednesday, December 13 at 9am PT/noon ET/ 7pm Israel time

Join us as we learn from Israeli Rabbi Leora Ezrachi-Vered about:

The Shared Society of the Lower Galilee

In the multiethnic region of the Jezreel Valley, Jews participate in a shared society, partnering with and affirming human bonds of connection with members of 

-the Arab-speaking Catholic Church in Migdal Ha’emek, 

-the Muslim and Druze communities of Shefaraam,

-members of the Sufi movement in Nazerath and Eilut, and 

-leaders from the Bedouin towns of Manshiyet Zabda and Zarzir.

The night of October 6, in fact, 300 people, in the region gathered at Congregation Nigun Ha-Lev to share in the beauty of the Jewish holiday of Sukkot. Learn how the events of October 7 impacted this community and prepare to be inspired by their humanity-affirming response.

Rabbi Leora Ezrachi-Vered was born in Jerusalem and grew up in the Israeli Reform Movement. Ordained by HUC-Jerusalem in 2017 she has been the rabbi of Nigun Halev in the Jezreel Valley since. Active in multiple interfaith and shared society initiatives, she is a board member of Tag Meir and Rabbis for Human Rights.

Nigun Halev is a grassroots community that was founded over 20 years ago by a group of local educators and activists. The founding members wished to create a community that will be a place to explore Jewish identity, education and Jewish life and culture, while promoting Shared Society and dialogue in a highly diverse region of Israel. The community is home to over 150 members and celebrates lifecycle events (B'nai Mitzvah), holidays and Shabbat while also building itself as a diverse cultural and spiritual centre in the Lower Galilee.
