David and Batsheva-The First "Me Too" Moment? Join Keshet Israel educator Kayla Ship for a careful reading of the story of David and Batsheva from 2 Samuel 11, highlighting the concept of Jewish political morality and the figure of David as a paradigm for teshuvah. In addition to the written text, we will look at "visual Midrash" to see how master painters have portrayed Batsheva, as well as listen to some contemporary music inspired by this well-known biblical story.

Join Danny Ehrlich for a virtual guided tour in the Old City of Jerusalem. We’ll step back 2,700 years to the days of the prophets Isaiah and Jeremiah who walked and taught there and unravel some of the layers of the Jewish “love affair” with Jerusalem, as we gain insight into how Jerusalem became so important to the Jewish people.
Join Danny Ehrlich for an overview of the story of the Jews of Poland past, present and future as we consider these questions: Why did medieval Poland welcome Jews when almost every other country in Europe was expelling its Jews? How did Jewish life flourish in Poland for more than 1,000 years despite rampant anti-Semitism? What is the truth about Poland vis-a-vis its Jews during the Shoah? What is the status of the Jewish community in Poland today?
The 1,000-year Jewish story of Sepharad (Spain and Portugal) is one of triumph and despair. Join Keshet’s Kayla Ship for a virtual tour of Cordoba, home of Hasdai ibn Shaprut, Yehuda Halevi, and Maimonides, and impressive landmarks such as La Mezquita. Kayla Ship will highlight the “Golden Age” of Spain and its contribution to Hebrew poetry, science, medicine, and Jewish philosophy.
