Israel’s Ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer to Speak at JCRC Annual Birnbaum Lecture
(Boston, MA) – The Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Boston (JCRC) welcomes Ron Dermer, Israel’s Ambassador to the United States, to deliver the 15th Annual Connie Spear Birnbaum Memorial Lecture on Monday, May 7, 2018 at Temple Reyim in Newton. Ambassador Dermer will speak on the topic, “The Challenges Facing Israel Today.”
“It is our great honor – as JCRC and as the organized Jewish community of Boston – to host the State of Israel’s highest representative to the United States, His Excellency Ambassador Ron Dermer. This lecture is appropriately named for a woman who, upon her untimely passing from breast cancer at age 48, became a symbol of Jewish unity and the inspiration for an annual program which is intended to gather individuals from across the ideological and religious spectrum of Jewish life,” stated Jeremy Burton, Executive Director of JCRC. “Ambassador Dermer will address the challenges facing Israel today; a timely topic in this season when we join with Israel in celebrating the 70th anniversary of the re-establishment of the state of the Jewish people in its modern form. We look forward to hearing from the Ambassador, to him addressing our questions, and to his informing and enriching our conversation as we continue to work together as a diverse and yet unified community.” To learn more and RSVP, visit https://www.jcrcboston.org/events/cbl2018.
