Rabbi Jon’s Course at OLLI Community Adult Education Program: Israeli/Palestinian Conflict -- Historical Background, Where We Are Today

The conflict between Israelis and Palestinians is long and touches many of us locally in a personal way because of ties of family, faith, community or work. For many, the conflict presents moral and spiritual dilemmas. We will look at the history of the population and settlement of the land, the rise of and philosophies within the Jewish and Palestinian national movements, and major periods such as 1947-1949, 1967 and its aftermath, and the Oslo peace period. What is the situation today and what are the visions of what is possible? We will try to answer questions, be rooted in facts and acknowledge biases.

Registration and fee required at olli.granite.edu. If there is interest, a version of the series will be scheduled for the synagogue.
