In the final episode of History of Israel Explained, we recap the series.

For the last 12 months, we’ve unpacked Israel’s history from multiple angles and perspectives to provide the context and nuance that’s so often missing when people talk about the Jewish state.

We’ve touched on immigration, language, politics, innovation, Zionism, daring exploits, espionage, ideology, and war.

When people think of Israel, too often they only think of war and terror. But focusing only on this narrative means missing out on so many aspects of Israel’s incredible history that we’ve covered over the past year.

What do you think? Have your opinions about Israel changed after watching this series? What was the event that most surprised you? What was the most compelling video from the past year?
