Selected Issues in the History of the Yishuv and the State of Israel

Based on the Cherrick Forum discussions, this series is published for the Center by Magnes Press. Each volume explores issues such as the following: Jews and Palestinians - similarities and dissimilarities; some means of creating a new national identity - music, the Bible, the link to nature, and the role of the intellectuals; the circumstances surrounding the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948 and its connection to the Holocaust; changes in the Kibbutzim; Israeli military history; the Israeli democracy; the relations between various sectors in Israeli society and the State as a political, legislative, social, cultural, and economic institution.
