Tuesday, August 29, 2017 - 10:00am
The Rudnick lecture is pleased to welcome Yossi Halevi to discuss US-Israeli policy. Halevi worked as a senior writer for the bi-weekly magazine The Jerusalem Report from its founding until 2002. Halevi wrote a column for The Jerusalem Post, and wrote regularly on Israeli issues for the op-ed page of the Los Angeles Times, and occasionally for the New York Times and Washington Post. His first book, Memoirs of a Jewish Extremist, was published in 1995. In 2001 he published At the Entrance to the Garden of Eden: A Jew's Search for God with Christians and Muslims in the Holy Land. The book tells of his spiritual journey as a religious Jew into the worlds of Christianity and Islam in Israel. Halevi is a Fellow at the Shalom Hartman Institute, a Jerusalem-based research institute and educational center. He is Israel correspondent and contributing editor of The New Republic. In the fall of 2013, he began teaching at the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York. Halevi's book Like Dreamers: The Story of the Israeli Paratroopers who Reunited Jerusalem and Divided A Nation was released in October 2013.This lecture is generously funded by the Rudnick Endowment. A reception will follow the lecture.
