Biljetter

The events of October 7th were a watershed moment in modern Jewish history, not only because of their horrific nature but also because of the world’s shocking response, and the tidal wave of antisemitism that followed. At a time like this, all of our beliefs, instincts, and alliances are put to test and must be re-examined.

It is time for a deep, sober and brave conversation about this moment and its implications for the Jewish future. We would like to hold this conversation with some of the leading Jewish intellectuals of our time, offering various perspectives and insights, and charting the path ahead. 

For security reasons, you will be required to present your ID card. No large bags allowed on the premises.

Warm welcome.
