The course includes six video classes, each between 45-60 minutes long. You can watch them at your own pace and at your own convenience.


Topics covered in the course include:

  1. The roots of early Zionism and how it grew out of the Jewish experience in the Diaspora.    

  2. The struggles and incredible achievements of the early waves of Zionism as they transformed the land of Israel and prepared the way for the eventual establishment of the state.

  3. The process and challenges actually establishing the state, even after the Jews were promised one by the international community.

  4. The pivotal events that took place after the creation of the state and how they still continue to impact Israel today.

  5. How Israel, despite its many security challenges, has become not only a nation that is surviving but also a nation that is thriving, leading the world in many important fields of science, medicine, ecology, and technology.
