Join veteran Middle East peace negotiator and American diplomat, Ambassador Dennis Ross as he provides a behind-the-scenes look at the current US-Israel relationship. With elections in Israel taking place on September 17th and elections here in 2020, who wins will certainly play a major role in defining the relationship going forward. Regardless of your views, you will better understand the current realities and what may be.


Ambassador Ross just published his latest book, Be Strong and of Good Courage, which highlights four Israeli leaders who faced existential questions about the future of Israel. These stories are relevant today as Israel strives to maintain its identity as a Jewish and democratic state and enhances its relationship between the United States and Diaspora.
