    A week before Yom Kippur 1973, I moved from Hazerim air force base to Jerusalem to study history at Hebrew University. Yet it was life, not university, which actually taught me a history lesson.

    Early in the morning of Yom Kippur, I woke up amid the half-opened boxes to the...

  • Yes, that was Moshe Dayan on ‘Mad Men’

    June 11, 2013 | 9:53 am

    A few months back, JTA board macher and fellow “Mad Men” fan Danny Krifcher suggested that I write up a column predicting how each of the characters would respond to the Six Day War.

    It was a fun idea. I gave it some thought, but couldn’t come up with any good ones. So I let it go.

    And so did the show. This season picked up after June 1967, skipping right over Israel’s dramatic victory.

    Until this week.

    Which is my long-winded way of saying… yes, that was a big picture of Moshe Dayan hanging over Stan Rizzo’s bed.

    I moderated a panel Sunday in which three historians disagreed with one another on the core failure of the 1973 Yom Kippur War. I know these three historians – Amiram Ezov, Uri Bar-Joseph, Yigal Kipnis - and I was the editor in charge of the book each has published in the last two...

    A different and shorter version of the following article appeared earlier ‎this week in the IHT-NYT.

    It is a story almost 40 years old, yet still painful as a fresh wound. On ‎Monday, it emerged that Israel’s Attorney General has decided to not to ‎indict a former head...

  • June 5, 1967

    Levi Eshkol was one of the greatest Israeli heroes you never heard of. Eshkol was Israel’s prime minister during the Six Day War, which began 44 years ago this week, on June 5, 1967.

    In six days — 132 hours — Israel defeated three major Arab armies. It turned imminent...
