CBS First Friday: Refugees and Citizenship in Israel

Professor Ben Herzog, CU Boulder’s 2022-2023 Israel Institute Visiting Faculty, will speak about Refugees and Citizenship in Israel.

Zionism has always called for the establishment of a Jewish State. However, Israeli society has never fully decided on the actual policies that such Jewishness entails. In his presentation, Dr. Herzog will present the legal, cultural and political attempts at articulating the particular Jewish character of Israel.

About Staff

They call me "NewsHound IV," because I'm a clever Finnegan, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was a rescue pup and glad to be on the scent!
