Featured Guest: David Makovsky

Wednesday, December 11 • 7:30 – 9:00 pm • Ulam Gadol, Wornick Jewish Day School • Member $15/Public $20

Whoever is elected as Prime Minister in Israel comes to power facing a number of critical issues: a stagnated peace process drifting towards a bi-national state, the possibility of annexing the West Bank, efforts to redefine the role of the courts, a troubled Israel/Diaspora relationship, and most importantly, how to preserve Israel as both a Jewish and democratic state. Drawing on historical lessons learned from past Israeli leaders, David Makovsky will offer an educated analysis of the current realities and a reasoned perspective for the future.

David Makovsky is the Ziegler distinguished fellow at The Washington Institute and director of the Project on Arab-Israel Relations. Together with Ambassador Dennis Ross, he coauthored the 2019 book Be Strong and of Good Courage: How Israel’s Most Important Leaders Shaped Its Destiny.


At the PJCC, we believe that respecting and supporting diverse Jewish opinions, beliefs, and practices is what makes us a strong and vital Jewish community. We are committed to promoting civil discourse and being a “living room” where discussions on controversial topics can take place in open, inviting, and respectful ways.
