Slide 1

 

This exciting program marks the 50th anniversary of the 6 Day War. We will explore the significance of this conflict upon America’s Jewish community, the international Jewish community and Israel as a whole.

 

 

We are very pleased to be welcoming three wonderful speakers, including program moderator, Dr. Neil Rubin. Native Baltimorean Jay Bernstein will explore what happened in America during the war and how Israel made American Jews proud. Mitch Gold, also a native Baltimorean, will share his experience of living in Beer Sheva at the time of war, and will present his personal collection of never-before-seen photos from that time.

 

 

Join us for a light reception following the presentation, served in observance of dietary laws.

Immigrants have provided a continuous source of vitality and ingenuity to this country since its founding. Steve Roberts, author of From Every End of This Earth, a study of 13 modern immigrant families, will tell that story. He brings it to life through his family history, his book and recent stories he’s written for Bethesda Magazine. But part of the American legacy is also xenophobia and nativism, an impulse that breaks out periodically in our history and is part of our national life today. Steve will also discuss the special responsibility of Jews to welcome strangers that has its roots in Exodus and the story of Moses’ exile.
