At BibleInteract, we were completely taken by surprise to learn that many people, from the age of 50 and younger, including merican Jews, do not know the dramatic story of how Israel became a legally recognized state. That understanding is essential for an accurate view of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict today. Therefore, this series of engaging conversations between Anne Davis of BibleInteract and her guest, Laura Green, who is an active Jewish advocate for the state of Israel, addresses this untold story of Israel’s return to the land that God has promised to them. The sessions are organized historically, so you can follow the story of Israel’s return from Jewish immigration under the Ottoman Empire, to the United Nations vote to give Israel its own state, and finally to Israel’s struggle to defend its country and its people.
Session 9: Challenges in Israel Today
In this final session of "The Untold Story of Israel's Return", Laura Green and Anne Davis discuss some of the challenges that Israel is facing today - from the army, to health care, to the serious lack of housing because of the scarcity of land. They also suggest ways that you can learn more about Israel, and how you can actually go to Israel to help this vibrant new nation that is only a few decades old.
