When the University of Hartford was incorporated just over 50 years ago by business and community leaders, they envisioned a center of education and culture for Greater Hartford. At its core, it would be a university for the community created by the community.
The University has come a long way since its humble beginnings on Hartford’s last remaining farm, evolving from a local school for commuters into a comprehensive university that attracts students from throughout the world. Yet it remains true to its original mission of serving as a valued resource for individuals, families, businesses, and communities throughout the Hartford region, offering hundreds of programs that serve the University and its neighbors every day. For over 45 years listener supported WWUH has served an important role in the University's community service mission.
New World Notes - Refusers
This week on New World Notes: radio program #309, February 4, 2014, from 12:00 to 12:30 p.m. (and on the following Wednesday from 8:30 to 9:00 p.m.), host Kenneth Dowst replays an installment that was originally broadcast on New World Notes in June 2009. It is just as timely today.
In Israel, military service is close to universal. Motivated by conscience--and at substantial personal risk--some Israeli soldiers refuse to serve with the occupying forces in Palestine. These soldiers are known as Refusers. We explore this important movement. And we'll hear one Refuser's story in depth, that of air force Major Yonatan Shapira, interviewed by Mike McCormick.
Music added: Chumbawamba, "Walking Into Battle With the Lord."
New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "false promises") of WWUH-FM, a community service of the University of Hartford.
