Natan Sharansky and Gil Troy in Conversation with Stephanie Butnick

Jan 12, 2021

Join Israeli statesman, human rights advocate, and Soviet dissident Natan Sharansky in conversation about his extraordinary life and new memoir, Never Alone, with co-author Gil Troy and Tablet’s Stephanie Butnick. In 1977, Sharansky was arrested by the KGB and spent nine years as a political prisoner for his democratic dissident activism—preparing him for a life of public service upon his release that he never could have imagined. Hear him discuss the lessons that have defined his life, his efforts to unite the Jewish people, writing his new memoir with Gil Troy, the recent Middle East peace treaty, and much more. Your questions on the future of Israel/U.S. relations encouraged. Introduction by Matthew Bronfman.
