David Makovsky, Dennis Ross and Rabbi Peter J. Rubinstein

Join 92Y’s Rabbi Peter J. Rubinstein as he welcomes veteran Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiators Ambassador Dennis Ross and David Makovsky to talk about the Trump administration’s Middle East peace plan and upcoming Israeli elections.

In their book, Be Strong and of Good Courage: How Israel’s Most Important Leaders Shaped Its Destiny, Ross and Makovsky examine Israeli leaders who faced hard choices with tremendous political courage, and how those choices still resonate today. With this discussion, they will look at those leaders’ actions with a focus on the future of a Jewish democratic state. Hear them discuss what the recent election results mean for modern Israel, how the upcoming election will be shaped by historic decisions, and what the announcement of the Middle East peace plan will mean to the region moving forward.

A book signing follows the event.
