Of the minority nationalisms that American Zionists encountered in a United States context rife with nationalist activity, it was the Irish movement that they most admired. Why was this, and what lessons did Zionists take from Irish nationalism?

Historian Judah Bernstein will tackle these questions and others in this lunchtime talk.

This is a brown bag lunch event – bring a lunch to enjoy during the talk.
