This is the first part of Rav Uri Sherki’s lecture. The second part can be seen here.
The text of this lecture can be found here.
We would be very grateful if at the end of the lecture you would let us know your opinion about it, by answering a few questions on this page.
The purpose of this lecture is to introduce you to new directions for the development and involvement of Religious Zionism, which are currently taking place in Israel. We would like to start translating the concepts and ideas of these religious developments into English. This lecture is an introductory test that will enable us to start this project.
We are very concerned about the adequate presentation of this concept – such a presentation is naturally very difficult because of the differences in terminology and associations in Hebrew and English, as well as the different backgrounds and values of religious communities in Israel and America.
And so, we would like to test this lecture to see how it is perceived in English: how to convey the concepts, ideas, etc. and how to fine-tune the material to make it more understandable to an American audience.
The intended audience for this lectures was primarily the Modern Orthodox movement in America as a specific focus group, in order to assess the correctness of our approach and what adjustments it requires.
Thank you very much for your support and comments.
