Event Description


Join us for a vibrant conversation with one of the most visionary leaders in Israel. Born in 1955, Avraham Burg witnessed firsthand many of the most dramatic and critical moments in Israeli history. He offers a deeply personal and unique reflection on Israel\\\'s history, Zionism, and Jewish identity in the modern world. His insights come at a particularly poignant moment in time: on the eve of Yom Ha\\\'atzmaut (Israeli Independence Day), and closely following the elections in Israel. The evening will consist of a speaker presentation, moderated audience Q&A, and a book signing. Copies of Burg\\\'s recent book In Days to Come will be available for purchase. This program is made possible through the generous support of Brian and Caroline Lurie. In partnership with The New Israel Fund and Congregation Rodef Sholom.
Avraham Burg was born in Jerusalem in 1955 to one of the most prominent families in Israel. Avraham Burg has held numerous political roles, most notable as the chairman of the Jewish Agency for Israel and the World Zionist Organization, and the speaker of the Knesset, among other public positions. Since his voluntary retirement from public life in 2004, Burg has become an outspoken leader of the Israeli left wing. He is the author of numerous books, including (in English) The Holocaust Is Over, Very Near to You and earlier this year In Days to Come. He lives in Nataf, just outside Jerusalem.
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.
