Remember, Relive, and Reflect

2017 is rich in anniversaries for the Jewish state, Israel, and Jews worldwide – marking the 120th anniversary of the First Zionist Congress, the centennial of the Balfour Declaration, and 70 years since the U.N. General Assembly Partition Resolution calling for two states for two peoples. Of all these momentous events, however, none will be more laden with history than the 50th anniversary of the Six-Day War. The legacy of this war will be a time of both celebration and reflection within the Jewish community and Israel.

As we count down to the 50th anniversary of the Six-Day War, June 5 through June 10, we are pleased to bring you 12 short videos produced by The Jerusalem Post and Jerusalem U, with historical content supervised by Professor Kenneth W. Stein of the Center for Israel Education at Emory University. Through these videos, you can experience the dramatic events of 1967 and how they transformed the State of Israel, event by event. We will share one video per week leading up to the anniversary week, and one per weekday beginning June 5.

These films are made possible through a partnership with The Jerusalem Post, Jerusalem U, the Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA), the Jewish Council for Public Affairs (JCPA), the Israel Action Network (IAN), and the Center for Israel Education. Your contributions to the Federation support educational projects like this, which strengthen connections to Israel and World Jewry, and the important work of JFNA, JCPA, and IAN.

Please click here or on the image to see the first video. You do not need to sign up to receive them – we will send the videos to you – but we encourage you to share the project with friends and family. Together, let us remember, relive, and reflect on this important event in Israel’s history.
