On November 29th 1947, the UN divided Mandate Palestine into two states. In this class we focus on major issues for the new State of Israel: the need to fight for its existence, the wave of immigrants who arrived at its shores and the creation of an Arab minority under Jewish rule. 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.
