Malcolm Hoenlein-
State of the Union for Jews: A SWOT Analysis: Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats Facing the Jewish People in America, Israel and Around the World


Wednesday, January 23, 2019, 7:00 – 9:00 pm
Martin Meyer Sanctuary

REGISTER HERE

For three decades, Malcolm Hoenlein has served as the elected Executive Vice Chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, the coordinating body on international and national concerns for 52 national Jewish organizations. If there is a global Ambassador of the Jews, it is likely Malcolm Hoenlein.  When foreign leaders want to speak with the American Jewish Community, they call Malcolm Hoenlein.  When far flung Jewish Communities need advice, assistance, or even rescue, they call Malcolm.  Mr. Hoenlein has traveled the globe meeting nearly every major world leader of the past quarter century including all U.S. Presidents and Canadian Premiers, many European, Latin American, African and Asian leaders, as well as many secret or discreet meetings with Arab and Muslim nations.  He has consulted, advised and negotiated with world leaders on behalf of Jewish communities around the world and resolved highly volatile security crises and sensitive diplomatic issues of every type imaginable. He is a noted author, frequent media commentator, and lecturer on international relations, Israel and Middle East affairs, Soviet and World Jewry, terrorism, the American Jewish Community, and intergroup relations.

Previously, he was the founding Executive Director of the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater New York, and the founding Executive Director of the Greater New York Conference on Soviet Jewry.

Malcolm Hoenlein earned his B.A. in Political Science from Temple University,  and completed his Master’s Degree and doctoral course work in International Relations at the University of Pennsylvania, where he is a National Defense Fellow in the University’s Near East Center.  Mr. Hoenlein taught International Relations in the Political Science Department and served as a Middle East Specialist at the Foreign Policy Research Institute.

 


Seeing Through the Wall: Meeting Ourselves in Palestine and Israel 

Art exhibit, movie screening and discussion with the film’s photojournalist, Howard Tatar, and Rabbi Stephen Pearce who was a participant on this journey 

Wednesday, January 30
7:00 – 9:00 pm 

This film follows a group of Americans who traveled to Israel and Palestine in 2016 seeking to understand what life is like for Palestinians living in the Occupied Territories and in East Jerusalem. The journey became an intense encounter not only with the people they met, but also with their own preconceptions, an experience that for many of the travelers was transformative.

Dennis Ross: Fateful Choices
Sunday, February 10
4:00 – 6:00 pm
Main Sanctuary 

In 2019, Dennis Ross will publish a new book entitled Fateful Choices. Written with David Makovsky, the book is about the fateful choice that Israel’s leaders must make if they are to preserve Israel as  Jewish-democratic state and avoid becoming a binational Arab-Jewish state. 

Join us to hear Ambassador Ross’ perspectives.  

Lecture with Q&A to follow.

REGISTER HERE

Dennis Ross has dealt with every Israeli prime minister for the past thirty years.  Having the unusual distinction of being a political appointee for two Republican and two Democratic presidents—Reagan and Bush 41 and Clinton and Obama—he developed close relationships with five Israeli prime ministers: Yitzhak Rabin, Shimon Peres and Ehud Barak as well as Ariel Sharon and Benjamin Netanyahu.  Few people know the history of Israel or its efforts on peace or its relations with the Arabs and the region better. 


The Israel Action Committee at Temple Emanu-El works to increase the congregation’s engagement with the state of Israel through education, celebration, and involvement. Questions? Interested in learning more or joining us for our next committee meeting? Contact Director of Adolescent and Adult Education, Ariana Estoque, at (415) 751-2541 x307 or aestoque@emanuelsf.org.


Congregation Emanu-El Summer 2019 Family Israel Trip

(June 27 – July 7)

Tuesday, January 15 – 2nd information meeting
7:00 pm
Temple Emanu-El, Chapel

Join Rabbi Don Goor, Head of ARZA World Travel who will discuss this amazing multi-generational trip to Israel. We will tour and connect with Israeli political and cultural leaders. We will immerse ourselves in the wonders of the past and the challenges and blessings of the present.

This tour offers two tracks – one for first timers, and another for more experienced Israel travelers, plus the opportunity to bounce in-between programs. A few of our teens will become B’nei Mitzvah, and it will be magical.
