Dick and Lee Laster Annual Lecture

Listening to the Wide Spectrum of Young American Jewish Thought on Israel Series
The response to the eruption of violence in Israel and Gaza in May of 2021 revealed a changing perspective on the part of younger American Jews regarding the Jewish State and its relationship with the Palestinian people.  In order to fully understand this shift, we are inviting thought leaders representing varying views as expressed by younger American Jews.  We invite you to join us in listening, confronting and wrestling with divergent opinions as we consider the relationship between Israel and American Jewry.
