”Dreyfus in Babylonia” 1948 Iraq showtrial of Shafiq Adas
and the fate of the MENA Jews

November 16 9 am Unfortunately we have had to postpone this event until January

Adi Schwartz

Shafiq Adas, considered the wealthiest Jew in Iraq, was hanged outside his Basra mansion on September 23, 1948, after a kangaroo court found him guilty of treason and aiding the "Zionist enemy." His execution sent shockwaves throughout the millennia-old Jewish community in Iraq, and is mentioned together with the 1941 pogrom of the Farhud as a main reason for the hurried 1950-1951 Jewish exodus from Iraq. Adas' tragic story and its significance – the deliberate targeting of a prominent Jew as a scapegoat by the government – is hardly known both in Israel and around the world. As a nasty academic trend is gaining strength, denying and minimizing anti-Jewish sentiments and actions in Arab-dominated countries, the Adas' affair reminds us that Middle Eastern Jews, just as anywhere else, suffered from discrimination and persecution, and eventually had to flee their birth countries. At a time when antisemitic tropes in the West are used against the Jewish State, accusing it of being "white," "colonialist," and "imperialist," the Adas afair could serve as a strong rebuttal of the anti-Zionist narrative and remind us that Jews are native to the Middle East, and that it was not "Ashkenazi European Zionism" that ruined a fictitious Jewish-Muslim harmony.

“Struggles over the IHRA Definition at UCL” 

November 30 9 am

Brad Blitz, Professor of International Politics and Policy at UCL

This talk chronicles the debate over the acceptance of the IHRA definition at UCL, and subsequent moves to replace it with an alternative definition. It describes how academic processes and norms were subverted to support the goals of a small group of academics, rather than prioritise the protection of students from antisemitic harassment and bullying on campus.

5-session Crash Course on Israeli History

Sunday Mornings from 10 - 11:30 January 8, 22, 29, February 5 and 12

Charlotte Korchak PhotoThis amazing five-part Zoom course on the history of Israel will be offered Sunday mornings at 10am in January & February. It will be taught by the popular Israeli historian, Charlotte Korchak, the Senior Educator and Director of International Student Programs at StandWithUs Israel.

This course is provided to our readers due to co-sponsorship by the Sonoma County Israel Committee, Beth Am JIAC, Under One Tent of Contra Costa JCC, and others.

Registration is required. Recordings will be available for those who can’t attend every class.

The course is designed for participants from age 13 to 120!

To understand the modern-day Israel/Arab conflict, one must understand the history of both Jewish and Arab connection to the land. Diving deep into Jewish history, Charlotte will cover Jewish indigeneity and historic presence in the land, exile, and the roots of Zionism. She will also trace rule of Judea/Palestine post-exile, Islamic conquest, the Arab/Muslim connection to the land, and the evolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Each class will provide well-researched material, analysis, context, relevance to current concerns, and Q&A to encourage engagement and understanding. Two classes will be pre-recorded, with live Q&A afterward.

Our kids, once they reach college, will be challenged about Zionism and Israel’s right to exist. And we all need to better understand the Middle East conflict to have intelligent conversations about it with family and friends. This course will provide all of us with the background to have meaningful discussions based on facts, and it will provide the tools we all need to fight anti-Zionism and antisemitism.

Charlotte Korchak is the Senior Educator and Director of International Programs for StandWithUs Israel. She has worked with over 10,000 students, educating them about Israel. Charlotte received her BA in Middle Eastern History from USC. She asserts that the clash of nationalities, between Jew and Arab, exists and cannot be ignored. Both peoples have a history. The truth lies in this complexity, not in the simplicity of one side or the other. She has quickly become one of the foremost public speakers in her field, recognized for making complex content engaging, accessible, and meaningful for all ages.

If you have ever wanted to learn more about Israel,
this is the class for you. Please register by January 6.

Registration is required and will remain open throughout the course. No class on Sunday, January 15, as it is Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend.

  • Session #1: From Ancient to Modern Times (January 8, 10-11:30 AM PST)
  • Session #2: Zionism, Arab Nationalism, and Jewish Statehood (January 22, 10-11:30 AM PST)
  • Session #3: The Rise and Decline of the Arab-Israeli Conflict (January 29, 10-11:30 AM PST)
  • Session #4: The Evolution of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict, Part 1 (February 5, 10-11:30 AM PST)
  • Session #5: The Evolution of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict, Part 2 (February 12, 10-11:30 AM PST)
