Adult learning at Temple Sinai: The Jewish Underground Militant Movements that Created the State of Israel: The Haganah, the Irgun, and the Stern Gang

Next Event: October 25, 2015 Brookline

Between 1920–1948, the Jewish community in Palestine fought for independence against both the British Mandate authorities and the Palestinan Arabs. What ideologies drove these Jewish movements; who were the leaders; who were the perceived enemies; and what were the fierce rivalries then that continue to dominate Israeli politics today? This class for adults will analyze the key violent events that marked this turbulent era and that continue to haunt the global imagination – the summary execution of Avraham Stern in 1942, the assassination of Lord Moyne in 1944, the bombing of the King David Hotel in 1946, the massacre at Deir Yassin in 1948, the Prison break in Acre in 1947, the near civil war between Haganah and Irgun in 1948 and other events. Actual background videos of some of these key events will be shown at each session. This class begins on Sunday, October 25, 11:00 – 12:30 p.m. and continues on November 1 and November 8. It takes place at Temple Sinai, 50 Sewall Avenue in Coolidge Corner, Brookline. It is taught by Dr. Lawrence Lowenthal, for 17 years the Executive Director of the Boston Chapter of the American Jewish Committee. We welcome all to join us.
