Israels Dilemma The Occupation The Jewish Soul Security   Wednesday Jan 24   $15 Members / $20 Public

Israels Dilemma The Occupation The Jewish Soul Security

Daniel Gordis Israel’s Dilemma: “The Occupation”, The Jewish Soul, & Security Presentation, Q&A, Book Signing Wednesday, January 24, 2018 @7pm Cost: $15 Members / $20 Public Osher Marin JCC, 200 N. San Pedro Road, San Rafael For decades, Israel and those who care about it have wrestled with the security/peace dilemma. How can Israel move to peace and attend to its security needs at the same time? And given that on the surface, nothing has changed, is Israel stuck? Is the region destined never to change? In actuality, Israel is bubbling with new ideas about how to move forward. What are some of those ideas, and which are most likely to succeed? The Osher Marin JCC is delighted to host an evening with Dr. Daniel Gordis, hailed by the Forward as “one of the most respected Israel analysts around. The program will consist of a speaker presentation, Q&A, and a book signing. Copies of Gordis’ newest book Israel: A Concise History of a Nation Reborn will be available for sale by Copperfield’s. The title received the 2016 National Jewish Book Award as “Book of the Year.” ABOUT DANIEL GORDIS Dr. Gordis is widely cited on matters pertaining to Israel. During the Gaza War of 2014, Bloomberg Views asked him to become a columnist explaining Israelis’ views of the conflict to the world at large. Professor Alan Dershowitz has called him “one of Israel’s most thoughtful observers,” while Jeffrey Goldberg of The Atlantic has written, “If you asked me, ‘of all the people you know, who cares the most about the physical, moral and spiritual health of Israel?’ I would put the commentator and scholar Daniel Gordis at the top of the list.” The Forward has called him “one of the most respected Israel analysts around.” In 2014, the Jerusalem Post listed him as one of the world’s 50 most influential Jews. Since moving to Israel in 1998, Dr. Gordis has written and lectured throughout the world on Israeli society and the challenges facing the Jewish state. His writing has appeared in magazines and newspapers including the New York Times, the New Republic, the New York Times Magazine, Moment, Tikkun, Azure, Commentary magazine, Foreign Affairs and Conservative Judaism.
