Dr. Troy is a professor at McGill University in Montreal and comes to us from Jerusalem where he lives and writes.
 
On Thursday evening April 4, 7:30 pm 
Take Back the Night! How to Defend Israel and Renew Zionism Today
Gil Troy looks at Zionism yesterday, today and tomorrow, arguing that while we need to defend Israel and Zionism, it's even more important to find meaning in Zionism as part of our own search for Jewish identity and broader meaning in the world today.
 
On Friday evening April 5, following a communal Shabbat dinner, Dr. Troy will speak about
This Week's Israeli Elections in Historical Perspective - even before they take place 
A basic guide to the defining issues and tensions in the Israeli Election taking place April 9 - understanding it from the perspective of Zionist thought, Israeli history, Jewish history, and Western democracies today.
 
Finally, on Shabbat afternoon April 6, following a communal Shabbat lunch, Dr. Troy will speak about 
Toward Identity Zionism
A text study exploring key issues in our lives, as Americans, as Jews, as supporters of Israel, trying to appreciate Zionism, nationalism, and the State of Israel as identity-building tools.
