We are pleased to announce the second volume in the Zman series, booklets of Zionist thought centered on the Jewish calendar. The booklets are the fruit of cooperation between members of HaMeorer (graduates of the Shiloach program of the Zionist Beit Midrash), the Menachem Begin Heritage Center, and the Ben-Gurion Heritage Institute.

Unilateral Retreats as a Strategy
By Adi Arbel and Inbal Liber
A new position paper analyses the strategic significance of unilateral retreat by analyzing the outcome in relation to the original objectives.

Can unilateral retreats be said to be an effective strategy serving the benefit of the State of Israel?
The paper maps out 12 proclaimed motives for executing a unilateral retreat plan, and measures the success of the Disengagement Plan vis-à-vis its proclaimed objectives.
