1957 Josh Kram
Director for Turkey and Middle East Affairs/Director of U.S.—Israel Business Initiative, U.S. Chamber of Commerce
November 18, 2015, 7:30pm at the Reba and Sam Sandler Family Campus, RSVP here.

Building strong commercial relations between the U.S. and Israel is an ongoing effort, but does it really matter to us, or to our economy?  Kram, who directs the premiere organization advancing U.S- Israel programs and relation-building initiatives, says yes. It does, and he’ll tell us why when he’s here.



1958 Olga Meshoe
Founder, CEO of DEISI—Defend Embrace Invest Support Israel
March 2, 2016, 7:30pm at the Reba and Sam Sandler Family Campus, RSVP here.

One of the world’s most vocal supporters of investing in Israel and denying the claim that Israel is an apartheid state is a black South African, a Christian, an attorney, a dancer & a politician. She shares her story with thousands of people a year, and this year, with Tidewater.  



1959 Matti Friedman
Journalist, former Jerusalem Bureau Reporter for the Associated Press
May 11, 2016, 7:30pm at the Reba and Sam Sandler Family Campus, RSVP here.

The AP had more staffers covering the Israel story than in China, or India, or all 50-odd countries in sub-Saharan Africa combined during Friedman’s tenure. Friedman saw first-hand the ongoing omissions, inflations, and has dedicated himself to exposing the anti-Israel media bias he saw for himself from the inside.
