Jewish Space and Time in Israel 2021/5781
Taught by Mike Hollander via Zoom
This presentation will explore how Israel created sacred space and time in the early years of independence. It will explore Mt.Herzl/The Mountain of Memory in Jerusalem, the place of national commemoration of the Shoah, the great Zionist leaders, and the heavy price of Jewish sovereignty. We will look at the evolution of three national Holydays – Yom HaShoah, Yom HaZikaron, and Yom Ha’atzmaut. The sacred space of Mt. Herzl and the sacred ten-day period are cornerstones to understanding the expression of Jewish sovereignty in Israel.
