Join our guide in exploring Israel’s Independence War through the lens of the canonic poetry of that era. Come experience the events, feelings and heartbeat of the Jews in Israel during these trying times as expressed in the poetry written by the legendary poets Nathan Alterman & Chaim Guri. We will bring dramatic events from the war to life via the following poems- The Silver Platter, Bab El Wad, Behold Our Bodies & The Trailblazers Words.

Through these poems we will touch upon some of the key battles and events that shaped the outcome of the war in 1948. We will find ourselves on the road to Jerusalem, in Gush Etzion & in the Negev desert. These fascinating poems are a central part of Israeli culture today.

This Zoom meeting is guided by an Israeli licensed tour guide and open for Q&A.
