Prozdor (8th Grade)

Prozdor Update followed by their weekly schedules:

We discussed the history of what happened to Jews after the Holocaust and how there was this feeling that there still was nowhere for them to go and why it was even harder when there were agreements made for what a Jewish state could be. After discussing the issues that faced the Jewish people we talked about the UN and how they became an important part in the founding of the State of Israel. As we discussed what it meant for the Zionist leaders in Palestine made the decision to found the state of Israel on May 14, 1948 and how it led to the first official war for the country. I would encourage you to ask the students about what they learned about the UN and also about how what happened to the Jews after the Holocaust has shades of what we are seeing in the world today for immigration for those people who don’t feel safe where they are.
