About the Event
Golda Meir was Israel’s first, and only female Prime Minister. She is remembered though not as a political trailblazer but rather by many Israelis as the country's worst Premier. Her legacy is tied to the debacle of the 1973 Yom Kippur War. In this talk we will explore Meir’s political career, her tenure as Prime Minister and explore the historical context of the Yom Kippur War and its political and social aftermath.
Our speaker, Professor Eran Kaplan, is the Rhoda and Richard Goldman Chair in Israel Studies at SF State. He received his B.A. (magna cum laude) from Tel Aviv University and his Ph.D. in Modern Jewish History from Brandeis University. Before coming to San Francisco, he taught at Princeton, Cincinnati, and Toronto.
