'Survival of a Nation' series continues at Chabad Jewish Center

Rabbi Yossi Labkowski of the Chabad Jewish Center has begun a course called "Survival of a Nation: Exploring Israel Through the Lens of the Six-Day War."

The six-session series began May 8 and meets at 8 p.m. each Monday.

Commemorating 50 years since the Six-Day War, the course invites participants to experience a captivating account of what was at the time considered by many to be the most improbable and astonishing victory in all of military history.

"Traditionally, Jews maintain a fervent allegiance to Israel and also lobby against human rights violations around the globe" said Labkowski. "This course explores the compatibility of these two values, examining Jewish perspectives on controversial human rights accusations leveled against Israel."

If Judaism is a religion of ideas, why do Jews care so much about land? Why does Israel perpetually raise the ire of the entire world? And what are the ethics of preemptive strikes and collateral damage?

"In Survival of a Nation, modern history meets contemporary controversy," explained Labkowski, "The thrilling historic narrative raises questions about morality and the prospect of peace in the Middle East that began - or were highlighted during - the Six-Day War and remain unresolved."

All courses are open to the public, and attendees need not be affiliated with a particular synagogue, temple, or other house of worship.

Interested students may call 239-963-4770 or visit for registration and for other course-related information.
