“Modern Zionism” Marlborough History Society talk, by David Chandler
15 April 2021 @ 7:30 pm
The Marlborough History Society invites you to join us for our next Zoom talk on Thursday evening, April 15, at 7:30 pm. Our speaker will be David Chandler, well known local historian, who will speak about “Modern Zionism”.
Although the Society concentrates on the history of Marlborough and Wiltshire, we often include topics of more general interest, such as this. David offers this introduction to his lecture:
“Mount Zion in Jerusalem is an ancient symbol of Jewish identity. It was the name given to the modern movement which aimed to establish a Jewish homeland in Palestine. Modern Zionism is just over one hundred years old so not very old in the long history of the Jewish people. I am aiming to explore the origins and development of this movement.”
Guest tickets are £5 —please contact the membership secretary at email@example.com. Or, it’s not too late to join the Society – please go to our website at www.marlboroughhistorysociety.co.uk. The annual fee is £15.
