Jewish History and Culture III: Modern Era
Rabbi Jamie Cowen
Part of the Madrikh Level
In this final of three surveys on Jewish History and Culture, the learner will explore the historical roots of the return to the Land of Israel, the forces that helped mobilize the world behind the need to establish the state of Israel, and the consequences of the decision to do so. Zionism, the Holocaust, Israel’s re-birth, Arab radicalization and the challenges facing Israel in the future will be examined in detail. At the end of this course, the learner will have a much better understanding and appreciation of the challenges that brought the State of Israel into existence and will acquire a new appreciation of how to share the reality of the Messiah with a people who have yet to know Him.
