Inside-Out: Influencing Israel From a Global Jewish Perspective

Since before Israel was created, her ideologies and borders have been criticized, pressured and tested for boundaries.

Tuesday, August 10th, 2010 at 12:00pm EST a special event will be broadcast live via Webcast from Tel Aviv, Israel where top speakers will be put on the spot to debate and discuss the influencing opinions and actions of Jews in Israel vs. Jews in the Diaspora.

Questions that will be addressed include but are not limited to:

What is the difference of opinion between Diaspora Jews and Jews living in Israel? Who is responsible for Israel's safety? Where and what are the boundaries of decision making?

On Our PANEL:

Dr. Einat Wilf, Member of Knesset, Labor Party

Jeff Kaye, Chief Development Officer for World ORT

Dr. Edward Rettig, Director of American Jewish Committee, Jerusalem

Moderator: Leah Stern, The Interdisciplinary Center, Herzliya
