Defining Zionism in Easy-to-Watch Segments

The subject of Zionism is too important to rush through. Now you can enjoy Defining Zionism at your convenience.

Speakers are filmed in several short (5 to 10 minute) segments. Each segment is a different topic. This means you can “binge watch” a speaker’s videos all at once, or a couple at a time.

We encourage you to use the comment section at the bottom of this page to discuss these engaging videos and to let us know how you like the new format

I have been trying to watch this series of videos but it is a real challenge. They stop, break up and will not start again. Please, technology people, can you do something to improve the viewing experience? Professor Heschel deserves better!
