How World Antagonism Helped Create Israel
10.30am Sunday 21 January
Don Silverburg will be speaking about the many people and organisations which helped to create Israel by their antagonism. These include the Odessa anti-Semites and the Czar for pogroms in 1881-82; the French anti-Semites who sent Dreyfus to Devil’s Island which energised Herzl to create modern Zionism; the Peel Commission which came to Palestine in 1937 and decided to partition the country and the British White Paper of 1939 which cancelled the Balfour Declaration. The Arab states pushed out a million Jews from Arab lands and caused them to come and thrive in Israel and the Communist leaders made it so uncomfortable for Jews in the Soviet Union that a million Jews moved to Israel.
Israel at Seventy: In Weizmann’s Image
10.30am Sunday 4 February
Howard Epstein, is an international lawyer, columnist and author. His recent book “Israel at 70: In the Image of Weizmann” tells the story of Chaim Weizmann, whom he regards as the indispensable Zionist. We’ll learn how Weizmann’s four great political coups (the first of which was the Balfour Declaration) were each essential to the emergence of the State of Israel. Dayenu? Weizmann went on to accomplish three crucial educational feats that secured the country’s future and ensured its success. Despite Weizmann’s prodigious successes, today little is known of him and what he achieved. Why this should be so, Epstein explains, is bound up in the rivalry between Weizmann and Ben-Gurion.
