Essential Jewish Ideas | Rabbi Ron Shulman

Each week we will consider and discuss an idea central to the Jewish world view and important for sustaining Jewish meaning in today’s world. The essential Jewish ideas we’ll explore briefly each week include how Jews and Judaism think about God (Messiah, Afterlife, Evil & Free Will), Torah (Covenant, Jewish Law, Ritual & Ethics), and Israel (Jewish Peoplehood, History, Destiny & Purpose). Questions, discussion, and personal curiosity will guide our sessions

Master of the Game: Henry Kissinger and the Art of Middle East Diplomacy | Ambassador Martin Indyk

More than twenty years have elapsed since the United States last brokered a peace agreement between Israelis and Palestinians. In that time, three presidents have tried and failed. Martin Indyk, a former United States Ambassador to Israel and special envoy for the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations in 2013, has experienced these political challenges firsthand. Now, based on newly available documents from American and Israeli archives, he explores the origins of American-led peace efforts and the legacy of Henry Kissinger. Extensive interviews with Dr. Kissinger inform Ambassador Indyk’s insights.

Martin Indyk is a distinguished fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations and a former US Ambassador to Israel, assistant Secretary of State for Near East Affairs, and special assistant to President Bill Clinton. He served as President Obama’s special middle east envoy in 2013 and 2014.
