Fear, Elation, and Hope: The Emotional Impact of the Six-Day War on the Jewish Community
Presented by: Jennifer Raskas, JCRC Director of Israel Action Center
For Jews around the world, the time period of the Six-Day War was marked by an existential fear of the possible extinction of the State of Israel, followed by an unimaginable euphoria over the incredible military victories and capture of Jerusalem. The emotional highs and lows have continued throughout the past 50 years. At this program, we will examine the emotional impact the Six-Day War has had on the Jewish people and the ramifications it continues to have for Israelis and Jews around the world. This will help us better appreciate the events of the past 50 years and uncover our own emotional mindsets regarding the 50th anniversary.
