Qabbalat Shabbat with Visiting Israeli Rabbi Itamar Lapid

Friday, March 15, 2023 | Qabbalat Shabbat
Temple Israel of Boston

In a time of war and heartache for the Jewish people, it is more important than ever for us to be in relationship together. We were honored to be joined by Israeli Rabbi Itamar Lapid for a weekend of learning and connection as we discuss the complexities, challenges, and triumphs of Jewish peoplehood for both Israeli Jews and North American Jewish communities.

About Rabbi Lapid

Rabbi Itamar Lapid was a leader of the Jewish Israeli renewal movement, a spiritual guide in the community of Shimshit, a sought-after lecturer in Jewish identity programming for young adults, and a cofounder of Midreshet Natur, a collaborative beit midrash with religious and secular participants. He is a cofounder and teacher in Madrassa/Midrasha, which pursues Arab–Jewish coexistence in the Galilee through education. Itamar previously served as a senior faculty member at HaMidrasha, where he taught for 17 years.

This conversation is included in our year-long program entitled “Scientists in Synagogues,” a grass-roots initiative run by Sinai and Synapses in consultation with the American Association for the Advancement of Science Dialogue on Science, Ethics, and Religion, and funded by the John Templeton Foundation, along with other individual donors.
