Women's Shabbaton analyzes Religious Zionist Movement's evolving relationship with Israel

Women from six different Masa Orthodox programs took part in Masa's 60 Years of Israel, 100 years of Zionism Shabbaton over the weekend of January 11th-12th.  Through lectures, discussion sessions and tours, participants analyzed the history of the Religious Zionist Movement and delved into the complexities of their personal connection with the State of Israel.
The main goal of the Shabbaton was to deepen participants’ understanding of the Religious Zionist movement and the changes the ideology has undergone over the years, while allowing participants to explore their own conception of Zionism and the State of Israel.  
Participants took part in several discussion sessions that revolved around keynote speakers and contemporary issues relevant to the Religious Zionist Movement, while raising questions that focused on their personal connection with Zionism and the Land of Israel, including issues of citizenship, Zionism, and the notion of “Eretz Israel Hashelema,” particularly the complexities surrounding Israel as a nation and Israel as a state.
