JSTU-H 500 Topics in Jewish Studies (3 cr.) Yossi Turner
Zionism and Contemporary Israeli Society

MW 4:00-5:15, #?, meets with JSTU-J 303

This course is intended to 1) deepen the studentsí understanding of
social, cultural, religious and political realities in present day
Israel, and 2) compare these present-day realities with the late
19th and early 20th century Zionist visions that led to the
development of the Land of Israel as a Jewish homeland. It is
intended that this comparison will deepen the students'
understanding of questions and challenges facing Israeli society in
the present.
