Discovery Series: The History of Modern Israel

Join Dr. Thomas Kolsky for a three program series discussing Israel and the modern Jewish experience. In this program you will explore the history of modern Israel, with a focus on the examination of: the Haskalah (Jewish enlightenment), the emancipation and its implication, antisemitism and nationalism, origins and evolution of Zionism, the struggle for a Jewish state, 1917-1948 (from the British mandate to statehood), and the state of Israel, 1948- present.
All three discussions will be held in the Community Room at Indian Valley Public Library on Sunday, September 23rd and 30th, and October 7th from 2:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. To register, please call the Reference Desk at 215-723-9109 x 3.
