Israel at 70: Ari Shavit - 92Y

On its 70th birthday, Israel is stronger than it has ever been. The embattled yet determined nation founded on May 15, 1948, has become a robust military, economic and technological power, enjoying sustained prosperity. But today, Israel faces new existential challenges: the danger of losing its Jewish majority (due to its continuing rule over the Palestinians), the danger of losing its democratic identity (due to the rise of nationalist and religious extremism) and the danger of losing the support of the Jewish diaspora (due to its changing character). How do we face these dramatic challenges? In a special event to mark Israel's Independence Day, Ari Shavit, author of the award-winning bestseller My Promised Land: The Triumph and Tragedy of Israel, offers a timely, thoughtful discussion based on his forthcoming book.
