Great Zionist Thinkers (IN PERSON)

Thu (4 Sessions) Feb 02 - Feb 23 | 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
DESCRIPTION
In honour of Israel’s 75th birthday we will examine the lives and works of those who devoted their lives to make the dream of a Jewish homeland a reality. We will explore how Jewish Messianism transformed into nationalism from the beginning of the 19th century up until the creation of the State of Israel.
