Nov. 19, Robert Moog, International Studies Prof. at NCSU.
The Changing Landscape of the Israeli-Iranian Relationship.

Series Fee: $20 per person, full time students $5.00

The Triangle Jewish Chorale presents: Israel at 70: A History in Song
From a poem written before the establishment of the State in 1948, and set to a Bukharian melody, to a song written decades later by Naomi Shemer and performed in 2018 by 12,000 Israelis, Israeli musicians have created a history of Israel in their songs.  We celebrate both the 70th anniversary of the founding of the State and the composers who have created this uniquely Israeli body of music.
Sunday November 18, 2018 3:00 p.m. The Levin Jewish Community Center 1937 W. Cornwallis Road, Durham
