Tal Keinan, "God Is in the Crowd"
Sunday, March 10 | 12 PM | Temple Beth Tikvah, Madison
Born to a secular Jewish family in Florida, Tal Keinan developed an early interest in Judaism, piqued by a Christian minister at Exeter. That interest took him down an unlikely path to becoming a fighter pilot in the Israel Air Force. After years of service, though, he began to question what he was fighting for. If Israeli society was based on Jewish ideals, what distinctive qualities in those ideals were worth the sacrifices he was making? Realizing he knew little about Judaism, Keinan then set out on a mission to educate himself.
