oin us for a thought provoking conversation with author, Neil  Rogachevsky, as he discusses Israel’s Declaration of Independence and how it relates to Israel today.

His writing has appeared in the Wall Street Journal, Tablet, Mosaic, Jewish Review of Books, American Affairs, Ha'aretz and other publications.

Through a presentation of the drafts of Israel's Declaration of Independence in English for the first time, Neil Rogachevsky will shed new light on the dilemmas of politics, diplomacy, and values faced by Israel's leaders as they charted the path to independence and composed what became modern Israel's most important political text.
