Join Alan Elsner, Special Advisor to the President at J Street, to discuss how J Street is engaging the Jewish community, fighting back on Capitol Hill and preparing for the 2018 midterm elections.
Monday, June 19, 7:30pm | Congregation Etz Chayim
(4161 Alma Street, Palo Alto)
As the policies of the current American administration unfold, what have we learned about its approach to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict? What is a realistic and appropriate pro-peace agenda, given the situation on the ground and the current Israeli and Palestinian leadership? How has Israel changed in the 50 years since the Six-Day War?
We'll be discussing all this and more -- and we hope you can join us.
Alan Elsner has had a long career at the top ranks of American and international journalism prior to joining J Street. As State Department and later White House correspondent for Reuters News Agency, Elsner traveled the world with Secretaries of State and was on first name terms with presidents and vice presidents. His sharp questioning during the Rwanda genocide forced the United States to change its policy and was later highlighted in the Hollywood movie “Hotel Rwanda.” As Reuters National Correspondent, Elsner was the agency’s chief writer on 9/11/2001. Elsner is the author of two novels and two works of non-fiction.
