Stuart E. Eizenstat, former US Ambassador to the European Union, will discuss the future of the Jews at the Leventhal-Sidman Jewish Community Center in Newton. He will survey the major geopolitical, economic, and security challenges facing the world in general, and the Jewish world and the United States in particular.
Eizenstat will discuss his book, The Future of the Jews: How Global Forces are Impacting the Jewish People, Israel, and its Relationship with the United States and how these forces include the shift of power and influence from the United States and Europe to Asia and Latin America; the new information age; the battle for the direction of the Muslim world; and the rise of a new anti-Semitism that seeks to delegitimize Israel as a Jewish state.
This event will take place on Sunday, November 18 at 11am and is the keynote event for JCC Boston Jewish Book Fair Day. Joining the conversation will be Rob Leikind, Director of AJC/Boston. The event is open to all.
