Nature Knows No Boundaries: Israeli-Palestinian Partnerships Creating Sustainable Communities
Jared Goldfarb
Edinburgh Jewish Cultural Centre
Since the late 19th century, the Jewish and Arab populations have struggled to sustain their communities with the limited resources available leading to ongoing conflict. But in recent decades a number of initiatives have brought together Israelis and Palestinians to share knowledge, innovation and their passion for the land, to build sustainable solutions that benefit everyone.  This session will focus on a few examples that not only serve as models for cooperation and problem-solving, but also provide opportunities to forge cross-border relationships and pave a path toward peace.

Marian Oppenheim Hall
Angels in our own traditions
Valery Rees
Edinburgh Jewish Literary Society
Valery Rees will look at some of the angels that appear in our own liturgies against a wider background of their origins and later representations across the Religions of the Book. How did people know what the cheruvim on the cover of the mercy seat were supposed to look like? Was Satan the equivalent of the fallen angel Lucifer of the Christian tradition? Who were the angels who ‘fell’? and who are the angels we invoke in the song Shalom Aleichem?

Let's Exploit Hybrid
SCoJeC Jewish Scotland Connected
Over the last two years the rapid adoption of digital technology for meetings and events means we can connect with people in completely new and different ways. Zoom gave us a way to stay in touch with people who previously would have met in person – and it worked remarkably well. Now as we come out of lockdown the same technology means we can include far more people, beyond those that can attend in person – but only if we specifically get in touch with them and offer them something meaningful and engaging. Join us to find out how you can take your events and activities beyond the boundaries of your building and of in-person events
