Fifty years later, Israel continues to face numerous existential threats.

Drawing on ideas of great Jewish writers and thinkers from throughout the ages, Survival of a Nation presents the Six-Day War in six sessions confronting the impossible yet important and controversial questions of our time with affectionate and fervent patriotism, while also remaining realistic and morally anchored.
