The Israel Forum: The Challenges Of A Young Country: Comparing Israel And The US At The Age Of 66


With David Blight and Ari Shavit, moderated by Emily Bazelon

It takes harsh compromises to form and sustain a new country. In its sixth decade, the United States faced a catastrophic period, deeply divided over an issue that was fundamental to its continued existence as a unified country. Are there parallels to the Israel of today? What can Israel learn from American history?

The Israel Forum is made possible by generous support from the Wechsler Family.
