Zionism, Americanism, and the Modern State of Israel
Hosted By: American Jewish University
On the day before Israel celebrates its 75th anniversary, join AJU Scholar in Residence Rick Richman and AJU Distinguished Professor of Jewish History Michael Berenbaum for a discussion of Richman’s new book, And None Shall Make Them Afraid: Eight Stories of the Modern State of Israel. Dive into the history of how Zionism, supported by Americanism, created a modern miracle – told through the little-known stories of eight individuals who collectively changed Jewish history. These individuals, whose stories span from 1895 to 2015, include Chaim Weizmann, Louis Brandeis, Vladimir Jabotinsky, Ben Hecht, and Golda Meir. This program is delivered in partnership with the UCLA Y&S Nazarian Center for Israel Studie
