The Zionist Council of NSW will host a talk with Daniel Gordis addressing the common critique among Western youth that the story they were taught about Israel is incomplete and ask how we might adjust our Israel education to meet the needs of a new generation.

Daniel Gordis

Daniel Gordis is Senior Vice President and Koret Distinguished Fellow at Israel’s Shalem College. The author of twelve books, Gordis is a regular columnist for Bloomberg Opinion.

Gordis’ history of Israel entitled Israel: A Concise History of a Nation Reborn received the 2016 National Jewish Book Award as “Book of the Year.” Ambassador Dennis Ross, reflecting on the book, wrote, “When I am asked ‘Is there one book to read about Israel?’ I now have an answer.”

Professor Alan Dershowitz has called Gordis “one of Israel’s most thoughtful observers.” The Forward has called him “one of the most respected Israel analysts around.” In 2014, the Jerusalem Post listed him as one of the world’s 50 most influential Jews, while Jeffrey Goldberg of the Atlantic has written, “If you asked me, ‘of all the people you know, who cares the most about the physical, moral and spiritual health of Israel?’ I would put the commentator and scholar Daniel Gordis at the top of the list.”

Gordis’ newest book, We Stand Divided: The Rift Between American Jews and Israelwas published in 2019.

Gordis and his wife live in Jerusalem.

The address will be followed by a Question & Answer session.
