A special conversation with Author Daniel Sokatch

January 10 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Sokatch’s book explores why so many people feel strongly about Israel and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Why does this issue alone turn some classic Jewish liberals into uber-conservatives? Why do compassionate and judicious intellectuals single Israel out for boycotts, sanctions, and a level of opprobrium they do not apply to the dozens of other state actors? Why do Evangelical Christians who have never met actual Jews, or for whom Jews are souls to be saved, feel such fierce loyalty towards Israel? Why does it sometimes seem like Israel is the answer to “what’s wrong with the world” for half of the people in it and “what’s right with the world” for the other half? Meet the Autor in person to explore these issues.

About the author:

Daniel Sokatch has served as the CEO of the New Israel Fund (NIF), founded in San Francisco in 2009. During the past decade of extraordinary challenges, NIF has risen to new heights as the great defender of justice, democracy, and equality in Israel.
