History of Modern Israel

Thursdays, February 29, March 7, 14 & 21

7:15-8:45 pm

The primary objective of our course is to help provide foundational knowledge about Israel’s modern history, particularly as it relates to the history of Zionism, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and what has occurred in the aftermath of October 7th.  The interactive class will invite thoughtful discussion and will explore key source material.  Participants will encounter important, oftentimes contrasting, viewpoints expressed by Israeli historical figures.  The subjects include varying perspectives regarding the nature of Israel as a sovereign state, the peoples who inhabit the state, and its neighbors.

Instructors:  Jonathan Golden (Shalom Hartman Institute) (for background information, please click here.) and Yoni Kadden (Chair, History Department at Gann Academy)
