The Tribes of Israel: A Shared Homeland for a Divided People, the second iEngage Video Lecture Series, confronts the challenge of creating a Jewish and democratic public space in the modern State of Israel—a shared common space for a people divided along “tribal” affiliations: religious, ideological, national, and geographic.

What is the significance of the State of Israel as a Jewish public sphere? How does a people divided along religious, geographic, and ideological lines build a shared society?

The Tribes of Israel begins a conversation to restructure the relationship between the collective and the individual tribes that comprise Israel.
