Israel: A Different Conversation featuring Daniel Gordis and Peter Beinart

Dr. Daniel Gordis is senior vice president and Koret Distinguished Fellow at Shalem College in Jerusalem and author of a number of books on Judaism and Israel, including Israel: The Concise History of a Nation Reborn.

Peter Beinart is associate professor of journalism and political science at the City University of New York. He is author of The Crisis of Zionism, published in 2012.

This year’s lecture is based on the popular podcast series “Fault Lines” in which Gordis and Beinart discuss issues crucial to Israel and Jewish life, in the spirit of civility and mutual respect.

A reception will follow the lecture. The lecture is free and the community is welcome.

The lecture is sponsored by the family of the late Hyacinthe and Harold E. Hoffman, former members of TBE and the Stamford community who were dedicated to many civic and Jewish causes.
