Israel, anti-Semitism, politics -- we are overloaded with headlines every day. This session will focus on the background and context of current events, with a focus on Israel. In this lecture, we will try to keep up with the news and put events into context, with background and nuance. We will review the most current events, and try to figure out: “Is it good for the Jews?”
