Please join us in welcoming Ambassador Dore Gold to the San Francisco Bay Area. Ambassador Gold will analyze Israel’s emerging geo-strategic relationships with Sunni-Arab and African nations. He has pioneered groundbreaking diplomatic initiatives with a number of these countries and has notably strengthened Israel’s strategic and economic position.

Prior to this position, Ambassador Gold served as Director General of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Israel, led the Jerusalem Center (2000-2015), and earlier in his career served as the eleventh Permanent Representative of Israel to the United Nations (1997-1999). He has pioneered groundbreaking diplomatic initiatives with a number of nations surrounding the State of Israel and has strengthened the State on a global level.
Ambassador Gold has written a number of books and articles on the Middle East, and his articles have appeared in publications including Ha’aretz, Jerusalem Post, The New York Times, Washington Post, and Wall Street Journal.
