Revivim opened the 2016/17 academic year on November 15th, 2016 with an event for all current Revivim students, dedicated to secular Jewish identity in Israel. Our guest lecturer was former M.K. Dr. Ruth Calderon who spoke about creating new, Jewish, secular spaces in Israeli society. She urged students to think about their personal identities, and how issues pertaining to their identities emerge and are addressed, or ought to be addressed, in the context of their educational work. After the thought-provoking lecture, groups of students from different Revivim cohorts conducted discussions, led by student representatives, pertaining to the personal and educational implications of the themes highlighted by Dr. Calderon.
