Gil Hoffman Oct 27

posted Oct 26, 2014, 4:05 PM by David Plass   [ updated Nov 3, 2014, 4:23 PM ]

Dear Beth Am family,

Please join me for what is sure to be a fantastic program tomorrow, October 27th from 7:30pm - 9:00pm at the Bellmore Jewish Centre (2550 Centre Ave, Bellmore).

We will be hearing Gil Hoffman, who is the chief political correspondent and analyst for The Jerusalem Post. He has interviewed every major figure across the Israeli political spectrum, has been interviewed by top media on six continents and is a regular analyst on CNN, Al-Jazeera and other news outlets.

His lecture is called "Peace, Politics and Projectiles - An insiders look at the aftermath of the war in Gaza".

In this fascinating presentation, Gil Hoffman will take us behind the scenes into the decision-making during the operation in Gaza. He will discuss the regional ramifications of the war, focus on the interpersonal relations between Jerusalem and Washington, and offer up hope amid all the pessimism.

There will be a Q & A and desert reception following his talk.

There is no cost for the program.

Looking forward to seeing you there,
Rabbi Mickey
