Join us in welcoming Ari Shavit, author of critically-acclaimed, New York Times bestseller My Promised Land: The Triumph and Tragedy of Israel. An outspoken columnist for Haaretz, Israel’s newspaper of record, and a prominent commentator on Israeli Public Television, Shavit has become one of the strongest voices in the nation’s public arena. He challenges the dogmas of both Right and Left with his unique insights into the roles of Israel and Zionism in the 21st century. Shavit hopes that his presentation “will promote a deeper, better-informed and far more balanced discussion of Israel and the Middle East. As the great American democracy and the frontier Israeli democracy face dramatic challenges, we should all be engaged in a profound, free and civilized discussion of the past, present and future of the Promised Land.” Co-Sponsored by Texas Hillel, Texans for Israel, and the Schusterman Center for Jewish Studies.
