Menachem Begin changed the political landscape in Israel when he was made Prime Minister in 1977. Before this ascent to power, Begin was a member of the Jewish underground and then an opposition figure to David ben Gurion. Eventually, he made peace with Egypt in 1979. 

Understanding Begin and the world that created him is a key component to understanding modern-day Israel. Join us as we explore his life and philosophy.
