Israeli-Arab Conflict

Tuesdays, May 28 – June 18

7 – 8:30 p.m. in the Parlor

Led by St. Paul’s Intern, Gabriel Ervin  Over the past few months, the conflict between Israel and Gaza has dominated the headlines, but much of the modern news coverage neglects the historical buildup to the current situation. This class seeks to go beyond the headlines and explore the origins of this conflict, which has lasted more than 100 years. From the Third Aliya and the foundation of the Jewish Community in the British Mandate to the modern peace plans as forwarded at Camp David and Oslo, this conflict is steeped in cultural, religious, and political history; through this class, we will challenge our current assumptions and go back to its origins.
