Author Rich Cohen will discuss his recent book Israel is Real. JTA Washington Bureau Chief Ron Kampeas will lead an interactive discussion with Cohen on current issues in Israel. Take part in a timely conversation about the Jewish historical struggle for identity, the accomplishments and challenges of Zionism, and the Israeli and Palestinian entanglement. We’ll explore what all this means for American Jews and all those concerned with the fate of Israel and its neighbors.
“Rich Cohen’s book accomplished the miraculous [...] by narrating the oft-told saga of the Jews in a fresh and engaging fashion. Cohen, whose previous books include Tough Jews, brings tough love to Judaism and modern Israel.” -New York Times Book Review
