Human Rights and the Public Sphere

7:00PM - 9:00PM  

Contact Rabbi Mordechai Harris

Tel Aviv's public sphere is comprised of many different social gropus that are able to live together in peace, respect, and dignity. But the contrasts between different values are still felt within the streets of Tel Aviv and raise interesting questions about the boundaries of democracy.

Using photographs from the Humans of Tel Aviv project, MJCC Israeli Artist in Residence Erez Kaganovitz will lead us together in exploring the subtle, but present tensions among the different social groups in Tel Aviv, and use the city as a laboratory to explore democracy, human rights, and the public sphere.

This program is made possible by a grant from the Lemsky Endowment Fund of Memphis Jewish Federation.

This lecture was designed for and therefore best suited to school students in 5th grade through University students.
