HADASSAH MAGAZINE DISCUSSION: ISRAEL AT 75: SUCCESSES AND CHALLENGES
In celebration of 75 years of Israeli statehood, join us on Thursday, May 18 at 12:30 PM ET for a special conversation on Israel’s towering achievements—from innovations in agriculture and high tech to the nation's rich arts and culture scene—as well as its ongoing struggles to define itself as the homeland for all Jewish people and its role in the Middle East. Moderated by Hadassah Magazine Executive Editor Lisa Hostein, panelists will include prominent American Israeli writer Yossi Klein Halevi, author of The New York Times best-selling Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor; Isabel Kershner, New York Times correspondent in Jerusalem and author of The Land of Hope and Fear: Israel's Battle for Its Inner Soul, set to be released in May; and activist and influencer Hen Mazzig, author of The Wrong Kind of Jew: A Mizrahi Manifesto, whom Klein Halevi calls "one of the seminal voices of his generation." This event, presented in partnership with Hadassah’s Education and Advocacy Division, is free and open to all.
