Israel’s Security at 70

70 years after Israel’s independence, the Jewish state faces a Middle East landscape that grows more complicated by the day. To help unpack the latest developments, Israel Policy Forum and Anshe Emet Synagogue are offering this timely and important program in partnership with the Center for a New American Security (CNAS) and Commanders for Israel’s Security (CIS).

Over the course of an opening plenary and choice of two break-out sessions, guests will get an array of viewpoints from leading analysts and former government officials on Israeli Security, Israel’s role in the Middle East region, and the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict.
