Speaker: Dr. Robert Eisen, Professor of Religion and Judaic Studies and Chair of the Department of Religion at George Washington University in Washington, DC

Location: Jewish Community Center of Greater Washington; Rockville, MD

Date: April 26, 2012

In modern times, religious Zionism is often perceived as the most violent branch of Zionism on account of its association with the settler movement on the West Bank and its extremist elements. This lecture examines the veracity of this perception. While religious Zionism can certainly be violent, the reality is more complex. Professor Eisen explores that complexity and analyzes religious Zionism within the context of recent research on the relationship between religion and violence in general.
