We are a lifeline to Jews in Eastern Europe, providing food, medical aid and winter relief. We fight anti-Semitism, connect people to their Jewish heritage and provide disaster relief.

The Unknown Future Relationship of Israel and American Jewry

with Dr. Ronen Hoffman

 

Wednesday, Feb. 15, 6:30 p.m.

Beth Jacob Congregation, 1179 Victoria Curve, Mendota Heights

 

Israel's relationship with American Jewry is central to its security and even its existence. What is the future of this relationship as many younger Jews view it differently than their parents? How do we address the rift between Israeli and Jewish American youth?

 

Dr. Ronen Hoffman served as a member of Israel's Defense and Foreign Affairs Committee in the 19th Knesset. He was a personal assistant to the late Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin during the 1992 elections, and he coordinated the Israeli delegation to the peace negotiations with Syria during 1992-1994. He earned a Ph.D. in war studies from Kings College London and is an expert in the field of political psychology.

 

Free and open to the public.
