June 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the Six Day War (June 5-10, 1967) between Israel and the surrounding Arab countries. The war was a pivotal event in the history of the Middle East and of the Jewish people.

Israel’s seemingly miraculous victory in defense of its homeland was a transformative experience for Israelis and Jews around the world, filling them with pride and confidence. But the war left much unresolved. Many of the issues featured in the news today trace their beginnings to the Six Day War—the “two state solution”; Jewish communities or settlements in the West Bank; and the future of Jerusalem.
