The Jewish Art of War:
A Historical Survey
Jews and war are not subjects that are frequently thought of together. This series looks at war and violence in three chapters of Jewish history, Biblical, Roman, and Modern, to see how Jews have understood the use of armed conflict to accomplish political and religious ends.

Jews and War: From the French Revolution to the State of Israel
Sunday, Oct 20  7:00 PM8:30 PM
The lecture discusses the rediscovery of war by Jews following their emancipation in the wake of the French Revolution. As new citizens, Jews participated in wars on behalf of their respective countries, often proving their allegiance through military service. The creation of the State of Israel, however, drastically changed the Jewish experience of war: the Zionist struggle for survival indeed revolutionized Jewish warfare. Presenter: Dr. Daniel Cohen

These lectures will be held at the Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center.  This series is made possible by the Maurice Amado Foundation.
