A TURBULENT PERIOD: ISRAELI POLITICS AND THE MIDDLE EAST with Professor Paul Liptz
The last few months have been among the most dramatic and challenging months that Israel has faced. The exciting Abraham Accords opened up the Middle East to Israeli diplomatic and economic growth but were interspersed with the internal political chaos under Benjamin Netanyahu and the unrest within Israel and the conflict with Gaza. This was followed by the unexpected fragile 8 party coalition government where every day requires creative solutions.

Paul Liptz went to Israel as a volunteer one day before the Six-Day War, lectured at the Hebrew University before moving to Tel Aviv University where he was on the faculty for 40 years. At the same time, he was involved in Reform realms and worked for NFTY, the WUPJ and lectured at HUC. In his so-called retirement, he has been active with zoom presentations and is eagerly awaiting the post-CORVID 19 era.
