Israel in the Eye of the Storm

October 16, 2017 at 7:00 PM - North County Lecture Series, Temple Solel

“Goyim kill Goyim and the Jews are blamed,” Menachem Begin once remarked, coining an old Jewish lament. But in recent years the Middle East has been wracked by storms that have not affected Israel, including sporadic acts of terrorism, and internal struggles throughout the region. Can Israel remain in the eye of the storm? How will it face renewed threats from its adversaries ranging from Iran to ISIS and al Qaeda?

An Evening with Carl Bernstein
The Use and Abuse of Power: the American Presidency from Nixon to Trump

Saturday, November 11, 2017 at 7pm
Don’t miss your chance to see legendary and controversial Pulitzer-prize winning journalist Carl Bernstein deliver his thoughtful, hard-hitting, and bitingly humorous analysis of today’s political landscape with a focus on US presidents from Nixon to Clinton, Obama to Trump, and everyone in between. Bernstein, along with his reporting partner Bob Woodward, unraveled the mysteries of the Watergate scandal in the early 1970’s. Their fearless reporting for the Washington Post, chronicled in their best-selling book and the Oscar-winning film All the President’s Men, toppled the Nixon presidency and forever changed the way the world looks at politics and politicians. More than 40 years after Watergate, as a frequent contributor on MSNBC, CNN, and other major networks, Bernstein continues to bring his astute analysis of what goes on behind closed Washington doors. Bernstein also regularly finds himself on The New York Times bestseller list, including most recently, with A Woman-In-Charge: The Life of Hillary Clinton.
