The Collective Memory of a Civil War as Reflected in Edutainment and Its Impact on Israeli Youth: A Critical Reading of Consensual Myths
Gesser-Edelsburg, Anat
Journal of Jewish Education, v78 n3 p254-280 2012
Following the political assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, in 1998 Israel's national theater Habimah produced the play "Civil War." The play addressed the religious/hawkish-secular/dovish rift in Israel through a critical reading of events from Jewish history and raises the potential of civil war and political violence in Israel over Israeli-Palestinian peace. An empirical study of 107 Israeli students from the 11th grade who viewed the play presents the potential of "Civil War" to influence students and lead them to a critical reading of consensual myths of the Jewish historical/cultural texts and current events. (Contains 14 footnotes and 7 figures.)
