Understanding This Israeli Moment with Yossi Klein Halevi

Sunday, November 26, 2023 13 Kislev 5784

10:00 AM - 11:45 AM

Beth El Temple's Israel Engagement Committee and Jewish Federation of Greater Hartford invite you to a discussion with Yossi Klein Halevi. As a preeminent scholar of the Arab-Israeli conflict, an American-born Israeli, and an IDF soldier in Gaza during the first intifada, Halevi will share his unique perspective on the current conflict and how we got here, Israeli politics, and the future of the Holy Land.

Yossi Klein Halevi is a sought-after senior fellow at the Shalom Hartman Institute in Jerusalem. He co-directs the Institute's Muslim Leadership Initiative (MLI), which teaches emerging young Muslim leaders in North America about Judaism, Jewish identity and Israel. Over 150 Muslim leaders have participated in the unique program. He is co-host, together with Donniel Hartman and Elana Stein Hain, of the Hartman Institute’s podcast, “For Heaven’s Sake.”

Halevi is the author of several books, including the recent Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor, a New York Times bestseller which has been translated in a dozen languages. Halevi’s 2013 book, Like Dreamers won the Jewish Book Council's Everett Book of the Year Award. He has written for leading op-ed pages in North America and is a former contributing editor to the New Republic. He is frequently quoted on Israeli, Middle Eastern and Jewish affairs in leading media around the world and is one of the best-known lecturers on Israeli issues in the North American Jewish community and on North American campuses. 

This program is being underwritten by two funds within The Endowment Fund of Beth El Temple: the Sharon & Bob Efron Family Fund and Mathog Family & Yontef Family Endowment Fund, and by Jewish Federation of Greater Hartford.

Proceeds will benefit the Israel Emergency Fund at Jewish Federation of Greater Hartford.
