Survival of a Nation - Exploring Israel through the Lens of the Six - Day War.
Mondays @ 7:00 pm

As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem, examine some of the key issues relating to our relationship with Israel. Why do Jews care so much about land? Why does Israel raise the ire of the entire world? What are the ethics of preemptive strikes? How should Israel protect against an enemy hiding behind human shields? What lies at the heart of the land-for-peace-debate? JLI is a creative presentation of traditional Judaism in a highly professional, innovative, academically rigorous yet 
accessible format. For more information or to register, see here.
