Jewish revivalism in the Arab Gulf States

A Talk with Dr. Moran Zaga

Dr. Moran Zaga will speak about the social and political conditions in the Arabian Gulf that created an interest in Judaism and what is unique about the UAE within this trend. She will examine which dimensions of Judaism are particularly attractive to the countries of the Gulf, and discuss how this connects to the recent normalization accords with Israel.

Dr. Zaga is a Post-Doctoral Fellow in the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations at the University of Chicago, and a Policy Fellow at the Israeli Institute for Regional Foreign Policies (“Mitvim”).
