Israeli Songs of Protest
Rabbi Lawrence Englander
Rabbi Martin Weiner Annual Lecture & Deli Dinner

Just as protest songs influenced political life in North America in the 1960’s, so has there been a similar tradition in Israel.  Hear and discuss protest songs going back to the aftermath of the 1967 Six Day War and on to the present.  Themes will include the Occupation, African asylum seekers, social inequality and more. Dinner will be from Max's Deli, with the support of Rabbi Martin Weiner's Education Fund. Come for the pastrami, stay for the wisdom!

Rabbi Lawrence A. Englander is the founding rabbi of Solel Congregation, Mississauga, Ontario serving there since its inception in 1973 until his retirement in June 2014; he now serves Solel as Rabbi Emeritus. He is also adjunct rabbi at Temple Sinai in Toronto.

Rabbi Englander received his Doctorate of Hebrew Letters from Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in 1984, in the field of Jewish Mysticism and Rabbinics. He has taught in the Religious Studies Department at York University and spent a semester teaching rabbinical students at Leo Baeck College in London, England. He is a former editor of the Central Conference of American Rabbis Journal and editor of The Fragile Dialogue: New Voices in Liberal Zionism, coming from CCAR Press in 2017.
