course.)

MW 4:00-5:15 #27334

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.
