Celebrate Yom Haatzmaut, Israeli Independence Day, with a Happy Hour with two Forward contributing columnists, Ari Hoffman and Joel Swanson, as they debate how — or even if — American Jews should be celebrating Israeli Independence Day. Bring a glass of wine or cocktail to the interactive discussion, moderated by opinion editor Batya Ungar-Sargon.
This is part of our new series, “#ForwardFocus: Talks in Trying Times,” in which Forward editors are moderating weekly talks with Jewish leaders working to build community through this crisis.
