18 Days in October

October 24, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Please join us for a special evening at Temple Menorah to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Yom Kippur War with author Uri Kaufman, who will present his book- 18 Days in October: The Yom Kippur War and How it Created the Modern Middle East.

Israeli Consul General Maor Elbaz Starinsky is a special guest for the evening.

October 2023 marks the 50th anniver­sary of the Yom Kip­pur War, a conflict that shaped the modern Mid­dle East. The War was a trau­ma for Israel and fol­low­ing the oil embar­go, a piv­otal reorder­ing of the glob­al eco­nom­ic order. The Jew­ish State came shock­ing­ly close to defeat. A pan­icky cab­i­net meet­ing debat­ed the use of nuclear weapons. After the war, Prime Min­is­ter Gol­da Meir resigned in dis­grace, and a 9/11-style com­mis­sion inves­ti­gat­ed the “deba­cle.”

But, argues Uri Kauf­man, from the perspective of a half cen­tu­ry, the War can be seen as a piv­otal vic­to­ry for Israel. After nearly being rout­ed, the Israel Defense Forces clawed its way back to threat­en Cairo and Dam­as­cus. In the War’s after­math, both sides had to accept unwel­come truths: Israel could no longer take mil­i­tary supe­ri­or­i­ty for grant­ed — but the Arabs could no longer hope to wipe Israel off the map. A straight line leads from the bat­tle­fields of 1973 to the Camp David Accords of 1978 and all the treaties since.
