Debate and Incitement
An Activity for Yitzhak Rabin Memorial Day
On Saturday Night, November 4, 1995, following the largest peace rally in the history of the State of Israel, Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated. The assassination came after months of rising tension between those who supported the Oslo Peace Process and those who opposed it. The traumatic event highlighted deep rifts within Israeli society – between right and left, religious and secular – sending shockwaves across Israel and the Jewish world, and catalyzing processes of national reflection and soul searching. More than 25 years later, tensions in Israeli society and the Jewish world seem as high as ever. Download our Toolkit, and allow your students to discuss all these big questions.
