An Evening with Daniel Gordis
On Thursday 15th June 2017, the HE Ambassador Mark Regev hosted guest speaker Daniel Gordis at his residence, for UJIA supporters.
Guests were honoured and grateful to hear the Ambassador acknowledge UJIA’s work in the community and Israel, and were privileged to hear Dr Daniel Gordis’ remarks. His analysis of the need to widen and deepen the conversation about Israel away from the conflict to a deeper engagement, based on a meaningful exploration of Jewish life and culture, resonated deeply. The books and TV shows he discussed and the anecdotes he told, demonstrated a different way to invite young people (and others) into a serious conversation about Israel and our community. It is a challenge we will not avoid.
As Bill said in his closing remarks, UJIA is only able to build a lifelong commitment to Israel among young people thanks to your ongoing and most generous support.
We also appreciate the generous sponsorship of OurCrowd and Investec, in making the evening possible.
