In this course you’ll explore questions about Israeli life and identity in a global context. Dr. Shayna Weiss will lead us in examining contemporary Israeli film and what these movies teach about Israel today, covering timely topics including the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Mizrahi-Ashkenazi relations, ultra-Orthodoxy, Holocaust memory, and more.

Each week, participants will screen one film at home in preparation for class discussion and learning. No knowledge of Hebrew necessary as all films are available with English subtitles.

This course is part of Centered on Culture, a new initiative that introduces Jewish and Israel studies through small group seminars rooted in arts and culture.
