From the first years of the State, the experience of Mizrahi (‘eastern’) Jews in Israel differed markedly from that of their Ashkenazi neighbors. This class will explore stories of culture clashes, discrimination and power dynamics that led ultimately to the rise of the Likud party in the late 1970’s. Knesset Israel’s Israel @70 classes – a curriculum by Dr. Rachel Korazim facilitated by Rabbi David Weiner - invite students to explore the Israeli experience through poetry and song.
