Six days in June 1967 changed the very essence of the Jewish state. Israel emerged with a territory three times as big as before the war. It controlled the holy Jewish sites in Jerusalem and Hebron, but also a substantial Palestinian population. While it was a military and religious triumph for some, others claimed that Israel lost the war on the seventh day, when it decided not to return from a significant part of the newly conquered territories. A panel of experts will discuss the long term implications of the war for Israel.
