Israel's character as a democratic Jewish state is under threat as never before. Mr. Gorenberg will explain what has created the crisis, and describe the essential steps for solving it. Based on his provocative new book, The Unmaking of Israel, this talk will provide a guided journey through little-known parts of Israel's past and a liberal vision for its future.

“Until I read The Unmaking of Israel, I didn't think it could be possible to feel more despairing,
and then more terribly hopeful, about Israel, a place that I began at last, under the spell of
Gershom Gorenberg's lucid and dispassionate yet intensely personal writing, to understand.”
--Michael Chabon, author of The Yiddish Policemen's Union
