Israel in the Eye of the Storm

October 18, 2017 at 10:30 AM - Mandelbaum Family Lecture Series, Coronado Public Library


“Goyim kill Goyim and the Jews are blamed,” Menachem Begin once remarked, coining an old Jewish lament. But in recent years the Middle East has been wracked by storms that have not affected Israel, including sporadic acts of terrorism, and internal struggles throughout the region. Can Israel remain in the eye of the storm? How will it face renewed threats from its adversaries ranging from Iran to ISIS and al Qaeda?

Celebrate San Diego!

November 13, 2017 at 7:00 PM - North County Lecture Series, Temple Solel

How have Jews shaped San Diego and how has San Diego shaped the Jewish American experience? This lecture uses the San Diego History Center’s current exhibition as a springboard to address these questions, using art, artifacts, documents and video, to present a historical narrative of San Diego Jewish life that considers the interplay between region and identity.

Produced in conjunction with the San Diego History Center and their exhibition Celebrate San Diego: The History & Heritage of San Diego’s Jewish Community. For more information: www.sandiegohistory.org/exhibition/jewish-history
