The PLO's Rabbi

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The PLO followed classical Reform Judaism in defining the Jews as members of a religion not a nation. Was the correspondence between the positions of these two movements merely a coincidence? In this session we will discuss the American Council for Judaism (ACJ), an anti-Zionist offshoot of American Reform Judaism, and the relationship of the ACJ's long-time leader Rabbi Elmer Berger with the founding intellectuals of the PLO.
