Israel Culture Club welcomes members


PROVIDENCE – A new Israel Culture Club is underway.

Host Congregation Beth Sholom, an Orthodox synagogue on the East Side of Providence, welcomes members and non-members to the new club, which will meet monthly, according to a release from the synagogue.

The Israel Culture Club, wrote Rabbi Barry Dolinger, of Beth Sholom, “will be an exciting way to explore and engage our commitment to the Jewish state.” Programs will begin in October, after the holidays.

Activities and events, which will be driven by those participating in the Club, may include these:

• Viewing an Israeli film with a moderated discussion to follow.

• Discussing a work of Israeli fiction or non-fiction.

• Hearing a variety of perspectives on issues of importance to Israel’s domestic and international politics.

• Discussing life in Israel, such as making aliyah or having family in Israel.

•Learning about archeology in Israel today.

The Israeli Culture Club is just starting, and welcomes more participants.

Contact the synagogue ( if you’d like to join or to speak with Rabbi Dolinger or congregant Harry Feld about suggestions or ideas.
