Why are so many people fascinated with the Netflix series’ "Unorthodox" and "Shtisel"? Do these series give an accurate portrayal of Haredi (Ultra-Orthodox) life? How are the different characters portrayed in these productions?
What are the origins of the Palestinian-led Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement? What does it mean to boycott Israel? What is in the BDS bill in Congress?
Are American Jews still strong supporters of Israel? What issues could diminish their support for the Jewish State?
Why is Anti-Semitism on the rise in the United States?
This course will explore these issues and hopefully find answers to your questions, and questions to your answers.
