The ALSJCC Henry Shenker Lecture Program proudly presents:

The Challenge of Nuclear Weapons
Speaker: Dr. Sidney Drell

Through the Cold War decades, the prospect of a nuclear holocaust was all too real. While the demise of the former Soviet Union has lessened that threat, today we face a grave new danger -- the acquisition of nuclear weapons by hostile or unstable governments and terrorists. What can and should we be doing to meet this challenge and prevent the world's most destructive weapons from falling into dangerous hands? Are there any reasons for us to still retain thousands of nuclear warheads in our arsenals? What are they for? Can we rekindle the bold vision of a world free of nuclear weapons that President Reagan and General Secretary Gorbachev brought to their remarkable summit meeting at Reykjavik 21 years ago, and define practical steps toward achieving such a goal? These are some of the critical questions Dr. Sidney Drell will address in his provocative talk at the ALSJCC on November 4. You can't afford to miss this free lecture!
