Power, Land and God: The Six Day War and its Meaning
MONDAY, DEC. 4
In this lecture, we will explore the way the Six-Day war in 1967 produced,
for the Jewish people, a sense that God reentered into history. We will
investigate the way Israel and global Jewry reacted to this new sense of
power and how reverberations from the war’s outcome are still felt today.
Dr. Tal Becker is a fellow at the Shalom Hartman Institute in Jerusalem
and a leading member of the Institute’s iEngage Project. Tal also serves as
principal deputy legal adviser at the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and is
a senior member of the Israeli peace negotiation team.
The lecture kicks off the East Bay iEngage Collaborative Lecture Series and
is offered in partnership with the Shalom Hartman Institute of North America.
