This course explores the pivotal events of 1917, 1947, and 1967 as key moments when Zionism unleashed new thinking about the meaning of Jewishness for generations to come. Memory
is a central element in defining modern Jewish identity. As we look to Israel’s future, we need to engage anew with our past and explore its meanings and consequences. This iEngage series
grapples with the different ideas and values that shape the meaning of modern Israel, Zionism, and Jewish identity today. Together we will engage in a new values-based discourse about Israel,
including topics such as: nationhood, land, sovereignty, Jerusalem and moral red lines.

Each session includes text study, discussion and video lectures and round table discussions with leading Shalom Hartman Institute scholars. Classes run from October through June.
