Hot Topics! The Yom Kippur War at 50: Reflections On Its Ongoing Impact

Yom Kippur - Session 2

Sep 25 2023, 3:15PM to 4:30PM in the Orenstein Mezzanine Hall.
NOTE: This event has already occurred.

The Yom Kippur War was a significant conflict that took place in 1973 between Israel and a coalition of Arab states led by Egypt and Syria. The war had a profound impact on Israelis’ sense of vulnerability, unity and national resiliency, geopolitics and more, both in the short term and in the long term. Needless to say, it also profoundly changed the way in which Jews in Israel and the Diaspora approach Yom Kippur itself, especially musically. 

 In this session we will reflect on the impact of the Yom Kippur War, then and now.


Rabbi Steven Wernick, David Barr (our member and Yom Kippur Air Force veteran), Maestro Meir Briskman and members of the Lishmoa El Harina Choir.

Our Hot Topics! programs are offered on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur only. You must be a member of Beth Tzedec to attend.
