On the 100th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration, the Y&S Nazarian Center brought together a panel of scholars of British, Middle East and Jewish history and politics to explore the Balfour Declaration's origins and its significance for today. Issues addressed by the speakers included: the circumstances that led to the declaration; its impact on the Zionist movement at the time; its influence on diaspora Jews' connection to the land of Israel/Palestine; and its relevance for current debates about the future of the region.
