NEWS COURSE FROM JLI IN HONOR OF 50 YEARS SINCE THE SIX DAY WAR - 6 CONSECUTIVE MONDAYS STARTING MAY 8. 
(note the change of day in the week for this upcoming course)...

One fateful week in June 1967 redrew the map of the Middle East.

Fifty years later, Israel continues to face numerous existential threats.

Experience an inspiring and thrilling account of what was then considered the most improbable and astonishing victory in all of military history.

Drawing on ideas of great Jewish writers and thinkers from throughout the ages, Survival of a Nation presents the Six-Day War as you’ve never experienced it before.

Its six sessions confront the impossible yet important questions of our time with affectionate and fervent patriotism, while also remaining realistic, and morally anchored.

This spellbinding course will sweep you up in its narrative force and abiding love for our nation’s history and the best of its traditions, and will not let go of you until it’s done.
Course subjects:

JEWISH HOMELAND
If Judaism is a religion of ideas, why do Jews care so much about land?

ANTI-ISRAEL SENTIMENT
Why does Israel perpetually raise the ire of the entire world?

PREEMPTIVE STRIKES
what are the ethics of preemptive strikes and collateral damage?

CIVILIAN CASUALTIES
How should Israel protect itself against an enemy that hides behind human shields?

CAPTURED TERRITORIES
What should Israel do with territories captured during the Six-Day War?
