In June, Chabad Lubavitch UK marked the fiftieth anniversary of the fateful week that redrew the map of the Middle East forever. Half a century later, Israel continues to face numerous existential threats. The summer course offered by the Rohr Jewish Learning Institute Survival of a Nation: Exploring Israel Through the Lens of the Six-Day War offered a fascinating & captivating insight into what was at the time considered by many to be the most improbable and astonishing victory in military history. Topics covered the ideas of Jewish homeland, anti-Israel sentiment, ethics of war, capturing territories, and peace-making.
