The History of the State of Israel and Zionism through 2023

Join Uri Feinberg, +25 year Jewish educator, as he takes us on a deep dive into the history of the State of Israel that will offer a first step towards creating a stronger foundation of knowledge on which to stand in the aftermath of October 7, 2023.

Price: $36.00
Tuesday, Jan 09
8:30 am - 9:45 am

The State of Israel is a vibrant, pulsating, historic, energetic, challenging and challenged heart of the Jewish People. Did we mention layered, complex and beautiful? Join us for a journey through the history of the young state. As we conclude and look to the future, we will have had an opportunity to strengthen what we already know about Israel, add information that wasn’t previously there, and regardless of our opinions about Israel, be able to ask ourselves (and maybe even answer), how does all this relate to us and why do we care?
