Description: When thinking about the 1967 Six Days War, we often face a dichotomy between those who mainly remember a glorious victory, the unification of Jerusalem, the liberation of the Old City and the Western Wall and those who focus on the fifty years of occupation, the controversy surrounding the settlements, and the seemingly endless Israel-Palestinian conflict. Israeli scholar Dr. Korazim redirects us l’chaim (back to life) through the spirit and the authentic voices of 1967 and their lingering impacts on our lives today.
