News Highlights I have Another Country

By Hebrew College

In conversations I’ve had and will continue to have about the question of whether to stay or go, a number of factors are at play.

matt schultzIn his October 18, 2023 article, Jewish Journal columnist and Hebrew College rabbinical student Matthew Schultz — who is in Israel with his Rabbinical School cohort — writes: “Israel is not where I grew up — I first came here when I was 20 — but it is where I became a grown-up. It is a place that has profound religious and political significance for me, but ultimately my connection to Israel is not rooted in any “ism,” whether it be Zionism or Judaism. Rather, this connection is rooted in something far more primal and far less rational than that. It is a matter of love.”
