Judith Levi and Katya Lipovetsky: The Identity Paradox: How Our Multiple Identities Both Divide and Unite Us
Opening Thursday, December 6th, from 6PM - 8PM
The Identity Paradox: How Our Multiple Identities Both Divide and Unite Us
In this exploration of universal identity issues—which are at the core of innumerable conflicts around the world— Prof. Judith Levi presents insights about identity she has derived from 20 years of working in German-Jewish dialogue and reconciliation. These insights address the complexity of our identities, how they influence our “reconciliation readiness,” and how we can use our identities to unite instead of divide us—by refocusing on our common humanity. Katya Lipovetsky, Israeli Director of Cultural Affairs, will present how Israelis’ complex identities are embodied in Israeli society today—how they collide at times, and come together at other times, with the other complex identities around them. A Q&A session follows.
