“When family members don’t talk to each other, the family breaks apart. We are here to talk to each other and try to solve the issues.”
—Avraham Burg

Avraham Burg, one of Israel’s most accomplished and prominent politicians, invites you to contemplate Israel’s complexities and the growing tension between American Jewry and Israel. He will share his unflinching assessment of the critical social and political challenges facing the state today and will offer a deeply personal and hopeful vision for Israel’s future.

Please join us prior to Avraham Burg’s presentation for a complimentary reception, featuring wine poured by Jazz Cellars, accompanied by delicious appetizers. We hope to see you there, for an opportunity to meet one another, and share our ideas in an open and respectful setting. Dietary rules observed.

Following the program, join Mr. Burg for a glass of wine and to continue the conversation.

Avraham Burg has held numerous political roles, most notably as the chairman of the Jewish Agency for Israel and the World Zionist Organization and the Speaker of the Knesset. He is the author of numerous books, including most recently In Days to Come: A New Hope for Israel.

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.


New Israel Fund
The New Israel Fund is the leading organization committed to equality and democracy for all Israelis. Widely credited with building Israeli progressive civil society, we have provided millions of dollars to more than 850 organizations since our inception in 1979.
