One fateful week in June 1967 redrew the map of the Middle East. Fifty years later, Israel continues to face numerous existential threats.
Beginning Tuesday, May 9, Chabad of Sudbury will offer a fascinating new six-session course through our Jewish Learning Institute (JLI) called Survival of a Nation: Exploring Israel Through the Lens of the Six-Day War.
Commemorating 50 years since the Six-Day War, the course invites participants to experience a captivating account of what was at the time considered by many to be the most improbable and astonishing victory in all of military history.
“Traditionally, Jews maintain a fervent allegiance to Israel and also lobby against human rights violations around the globe,” said Rabbi Yisroel Freeman, of Chabad of Sudbury. “This course explores the compatibility of these two values, examining Jewish perspectives on controversial human rights accusations leveled against Israel.”
If Judaism is a religion of ideas, why do Jews care so much about land? Why does Israel perpetually raise the ire of the entire world? And what are the ethics of preemptive strikes and collateral damage? The powerful historic narrative raises questions about morality and the prospect of peace in the Middle East that began – or were highlighted during – the Six-Day war and remain unresolved.
Like all Chabad of Sudbury educational programs, this course is designed to appeal to people at all levels of knowledge, including those without any prior experience or background in Jewish learning. All courses are open to the public, and attendees need not be affiliated with a particular synagogue, temple, or other house of worship.
This course will run on Tuesdays, May 9 – June 13. Interested students may call 978-443-0110 or click “Go” for registration and other course-related information.+ More... - Less...
