Embracing Democracy: Examining the History of 1948
Panel Discussion of Israel's 1948 War of Independence
The Washington DCJCC developed the event series Embracing Democracy
as a way to bridge some of the polarizing rhetoric surrounding the hot-button issue of the State of Israel. At this one, Slate
senior editor Dahlia Lithwick moderates a discussion exploring the developments in the historical research of 1948's War of Independence. In the years since, different historians have helped to uncover the more complex history of the war and its aftermath, even as that history has become an object of political debate. Set to participate are Professor Donna Robinson Divine, the Morningstar Family Foundation Professor of Government and Director of Middle East Studies at Smith College, Shay Hazkani, Visiting Scholar at Berkeley Institute for Jewish Law and Israeli Law, Economy and Society, and Dr. Yehuda Kurtzer, president of the Shalom Hartman Institute of North America.
