Beginning Jan. 6, 2020, Monday evenings, 7 p.m.-8:30 p.m. (Weeks 1-7) and 7 p.m.—9:15 p.m. (Weeks 8-9)
The course is taught by Yael Weinstein
Part 1: This 9-week course explores the history of the conflict from the inception of the Jewish Aliyah in the 1800s through the Six-Day War. Course material is designed to encourage discussion and debate, and to challenge students to appreciate the basis of the conflicting historical claims made by all sides in the conflict.
The complexity of the conflict forces students to grapple with issues of religion, culture, history, politics, economics, identity and survival—all reflected through primary sources, including newspaper articles, poetry, songs, government documents, speeches, photographs and memoirs. The course will provide students with new tools for understanding and critiquing texts and events as the conflict continues to unfold.
The cost is $250 plus course materials.
