The LAB Center for Learning And Belonging presents two LAB Sessions on Israel:

Monday, January 29, 6:30 pm, Zoom | Unpacking Israeli History and Zionism

Dive into the multifaceted journey of Zionism from its biblical roots in Israel, through the visionary ideas of Theodore Herzl, to the diverse forms of Zionist thought. This session offers a comprehensive crash course in Israeli history, shedding light on pivotal moments from the state's founding to contemporary issues, including the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and recent Israel-Hamas War in Gaza.

Tuesday, January 30, 6:30 pm, Zoom | Navigating Israel's Complex Narratives

This session delves into the complex dialogue around Israel in global discourse, examining how it's perceived and debated internationally. Learn historical and political context to discern and respond to criticism effectively, understand when criticism of Israel crosses the line between valid critique and antisemitism, and unpack the complex terminology surrounding Israel and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
