Asking the Tough Questions

A Conversation Between Rabbi Janet Marder and a Senior Israeli General
Beit Kehillah

Beth Am welcomes guest speaker Brigadier General (Res.) Nitzan Nuriel, a research fellow at the International Institute for Counter-Terrorism at IDC Herzliya and Former Director of Israel's Counter Terrorism Bureau. He previously served as a commander in the West Bank, deputy commander of the IDF’s Gaza Strip division and in a key role within the Northern Command responsible for Israel’s borders with Syria and Lebanon. In 2015, General Nuriel was awarded the Legion of Merit for his work as a liaison between the IDF and US forces. In that capacity he was responsible for building the cooperative counter-terrorism partnership between Israel and the U.S. General Nuriel’s recent writings have focused on the Golan Heights border security challenge from both a humanitarian and practical perspective.

Registration is now closed for this event.

This program is co-sponsored by AIPAC and Congregation Beth Am together with Congregation Shir Hadash, Congregation Beth David, Congregation Sinai, Congregation Kol Emeth, Congregation Emek Beracha, Congregation Beth Jacob, Peninsula Sinai Congregation, Peninsula Temple Beth El and Peninsula Temple Sholom.
