February 15 @ 9:30 AM - 3:00 PM

W19-91 THE ARAB-ISRAELI CONFLICT TO 1967
Friday: 9:30 a.m.-3 p.m.
1 Session: Feb. 15
TEMPLE BETH SHOLOM
Steven Derfler

The state of Israel became a reality in 1948. Finally, after 2,500 years of spiritual Zionism and about 55 years after the advent of political Zionism, a state was reborn in the ancient homeland of the Jewish people. Yet this homeland was to be re-established on a “twice-promised land.” Palestinian and Arab nationalisms were also promised self-determination by the British during World War I. In this course, we trace the roots of an age-old conflict, explore nationalistic movements in the region, and analyze Israel’s struggle to survive amidst seemingly overwhelming odds culminating in the 1967 war that would change the shape of the Middle East.
Silver Member: $109; Gold Member: $98.
