A History of Israel’s Borders

Hosted By: The Siegal Lifelong Learning Program at Case Western Reserve University

The borders of the state of Israel have shifted several times since its founding 73 years ago. In this class, we will explore the historical, religious, military, and geo-political contexts for these changes, with specific attention to the northern border with Syria, the southern border with Gaza, and the city of Jerusalem. We will learn the ideological and historic roots of the different terms used in discussions of these borders, and examine the competing claims, conflicts, and hopes that they represent.
