A Night with David Makovsky on Israel's Leaders

Modern Israel’s founding fathers provided some of the boldest and most principled leadership of any nation— now Israel needs their example more than ever. At a time when the political destiny of Israel is more uncertain than at any moment since its modern founding, “Be Strong and of Good Courage” celebrates the defining generation of leaders who took the task of safeguarding the country’s future.

David Makovsky is the Ziegler distinguished fellow at The Washington Institute, and director of the Project on Arab-Israel Relations. He is an adjunct professor of Middle East studies at the Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies since 2000, and was a senior advisor on Israel-Palestinian affairs in the Office of the Secretary of State during the Obama Administration. This is his third book.

Hear David Makovsky at the Miami Beach JCC, 4221 Pine Tree Drive on Monday, February 24 at 7:30 pm. Tickets are available at
