The Roswell Seminar for Social Justice

This Seminar is an intensive 10-day program run in cooperation with the Israel Religious Action Center of the Israel Movement for Progressive Judaism in which participants explore issues of religion and state in Israel, as well as socioeconomic issues, and engage in social action projects. The seminar delves into the basis of the Jewish concern for a just society, then goes out into the streets of Jerusalem and Israel to turn that vision into a reality.

Seminar participants will wrestle with the issues of religion and state, and debate what it means to be a Jewish country and a democracy at the same time. They will learn about the often hidden plight of the poor, the hungry and the homeless, going beyond the statistics to encounter the real people involved.

The cost of the Roswell Seminar is $500. (Including hotel, program and most meals. Not including airfare. Limited financial assistance available.)
