IJV Online Chavurah
As Jews whose ethical heritage does not permit us to be silent in the face of Israel’s violent oppression of the Palestinian people, we are often turned off by the tacit license of acceptance of this oppression granted through the deafening silence of the Jewish establishment.

As we yearn for spiritual meaning, we ask ourselves: How can we learn Torah without checking our politics and our values at the door?

I'm therefore inviting you to get together to read Jewish traditional and modern sources from a radical social-justice perspective.

We will meet via Zoom at 5pm EST on the following dates:

Session 1: Sunday, Jan 26
Session 2: Sunday, Feb 2
Session 3: Sunday, Feb 9
Session 4: Sunday, Feb 16
Session 5: Sunday, Feb 23, and
Session 6: Sunday, Mar 1.

IJV's Online Havurah is a non-Zionist space where we can build connections with like-minded people. All viewpoints are valuable, and we encourage participants to share their own unique thoughts and experiences. This is not a group meant to debate differences in opinion but to share and support each other's learning.

IJV's Online Havurah does not presuppose any theology nor any particular knowledge about anything other than one's own life. It uses a group format to explore Jewish text, liturgy and theology, providing time for participants to discover new meaning in old writings.

JVP is facilitating a webinar the evening of Tuesday, January 21 called “Judaism Beyond Zionism: Addressing Challenges with Text, Liturgy, and Theology.” (you can register at:

We will use this webinar as a kickoff. During our first meeting on Sunday the 26 we will read Rabbi Brant Rosen's liturgy (he is one of the rabbis presenting at JVP's webinar).

We will read first the original classical pieces (mostly Psalms) and afterwards Rabbi Brant Rosen's renditions. We will start with the one's he will present at the webinar.

I look forward to learning with you,
Lucia Pizarro
