3000 Years of Jewish Resistance: From Exodus to the IDF

January 17 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

$30 – $35

“Israel is the very embodiment of Jewish continuity: It is the only nation on earth that inhabits the same land, bears the same name, speaks the same language, and worships the same God that it did 3,000 years ago.”  – Charles Krauthammer.  In this sweeping one-time eventDr. Samuel Edelman explores 3000 years of Jewish resistance. Beginning with the return from exodus in Egypt and the defense of the Kingdom of Israel and Judah against invaders, to the Maccabees; to fighting the Romans; fighting the Crusaders; taking revenge against the Spanish through piracy; defending against pogroms; fighting back against the Nazis; to creating a Jewish State; to becoming a world superpower through innovation and technology, Edelman walks participants through the amazing story of Jewish resistance and survival. This event is also available virtually.
