Newman Headshot

Join the Schwalb Center for Israel and Jewish Studies, University of Nebraska-Omaha on January 7, 2021 from 7-8 pm for an online event featuring Tristan Newman talking about the history and future of Zionism.

Tristan Newman, a junior who is majoring in Religious Studies, will give a presentation as his final project for the History of Zionism course. Throughout the semester, he worked with Dr. Jeannette Gabriel, Director of the Schwalb Center for Israel and Jewish Studies.

The primary focus of his study was on the development of Zionist ideas prior to 1903 and how those ideas impacted the development of the State of Israel. In his presentation, he will draw on a variety of secular historical sources in conjunction with Jewish literature to create a thesis for the future of Zionism in his generation.

The event is free, but pre-registration is required from the Schwalb Center website.
