Lecture and Field Trips Program

Lecturers: Yoav Avneyon, Dr. Anat Gueta, Aviv Herzlich, Dr. Roy Horowitz, Ayelet Orpaz, Dr. Yaron Ovadia, Dr. Adolfo Roitman, Dr. Nahom Sagiv, Moav Vardi

In this program, we will explore one of the most intriguing social and religious phenomena in ancient Judaism: sectarianism. A special emphasis will be placed on understanding its evolution from the beginning of the Persian period to the Greco-Roman period. We will detect the building projects of King Herod throughout the country and abroad. We will attempt to sketch the general evolvement of the Jewish and Israeli theater in the past 150 years. We will delve inside Judaism’s ambivalent attitude towards the sheer concept of theater and its representation. We will discuss the development of Christianity and examine five different Christian paths and movements; the uniqueness of each group, its theology, and its social and political influence in the 21st century. We will hear about Glorious Zionist leaders whose life stories are completely forgotten. Among them, you will find Max Nordau, David Wolfson, Arthur Ruppin, and others. We will learn about the Bedouins: their origin, their past, present, and future. We will investigate the mapping of the Holy Land – a focal point and a subject of great interest since the early days of cartography. We shall review the history of map-making and shall demonstrate fascinating examples of ancient and modern maps. The dis-objectiveness of maps will also be part of our story. In a wider context we will discuss US – Israel relations under the Biden administration, how does their attitude towards the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the Middle East influence these relations. We will talk about the Israeli Arab conflict and the war against Iran. What are the challenges and opportunities Israel will face in the near future while trying to deal with Hamas in the south, Hezbollah in the north, and the biggest threat: Iran’s nuclear program? We will learn about the battle over the World’s hegemony between the US and China; how China is operating to gain global power and what can the west do to win this battle. Last but not least, we will discuss the struggle over the World’s climate change. Are we ready to pay the price today in order to avoid the climate catastrophe of tomorrow?
