“Truth and Lie” – This topic is both timely and complex. Lies and conspiracy theories are circulating about the current pandemic. The question of credibility is on everyone’s minds in the media, politics and our society: whom can I trust and why? We grapple with such dilemmas in our private lives too: when should we distort the truth in order to protect others or ourselves? At Jom Ijun, we will study the relationship between truth and lies from a cultural, historical, religious and sociological standpoint, and ask ourselves, what Jewish sources have to say about the “Post-truth” era. We are looking forward to an exciting day with you!
