The Zionist Revolution and the Road to Establishing the State of Israel in 1948: Course with Professor Arie Zmora
In what ways did religious and racial Anti-Semitism in Europe and in Muslim Lands trigger the rise of the Zionist Movement in the late 19th and early 20th centuries?
What were the seeds of the conflict between Jews and Arabs in Eretz Israel/ Palestine? How, against all odds, did the smaller, ill-equipped, forces of the Yishuv (the Jewish community of pre-state-Israel) prevail against the much larger forces of Arab countries in Israel’s War of Independence in 1948?
