7:00 PM - 8:30 PMSocial Hall

On the Map/Off the Map Presentation by Or Shalom Member, Vavi Toran.The many maps of Israel and the stories they tell.

An exploration of narratives, points of view and commentary through reading and decoding maps.

In his book The Power of Maps, Geographer Denis Wood reminds us that maps “are embedded in a history they help to construct.” With these words, Wood calls attention to two aspects that a critical reader needs to bring to their encounter with maps: Like all other historical sources, maps can be “factual” but they must also be read carefully as contextualized documents. The maps of Israel are no exception. They too have to be read with a discerning eye, in order to understand the subtext they represent. 

Please join us for a fascinating evening as Vavi Toran leads us in an experiential exploration of maps and the narratives they reveal. 

Tuesday, February 13 7-9 PM
