Respected by the left and the right (and sometimes criticized by both), Daniel Gordis is one of Israel’s most thoughtful observers. The blogger/ author Jeffery Goldberg says few care about Israel’s moral, spiritual and physical health as does Gordis.
Rabbi Gordis, Sr. Vice President of The Shalem Center in Jerusalem, is the author of a new book, The Promise of Israel. Among other things, the book turns the Israeli/ Palestinian relationship upside down in posing a solution to an apparently intractable conflict.
This past Monday night, Daniel Gordis and I sat together at Holy Blossom Temple and spoke about his book, the American election of the next day, and other matters both personal and political.
All in all in this runs about an hour and fifteen minutes. I think you’ll find it well worth watching.
