Yaacov will ask a simple, but highly charged, questions: What does it mean for Israel to be identified as a Jewish state?
He will base his discussion on his newly published book, Israel’s Jewish Identity Crisis: State and Politics in the Middle East.
Yaacov Yadgar is the Stanley Lewis Professor of Israel Studies at the University of Oxford. His work deals with issues of Jewish identity, secularism, and tradition in Israeli society and politics.
JW3 is delighted to host this series showcasing the Fellows of the Oxford Centre for Hebrew and Jewish studies
