AIPAC to host Israel at 70 event


Yossi Klein Halevi

The American Israel Public Affairs Committee is hosting "Israel at 70," featuring Yossi Klein Halevi on Tuesday, May 15.

The event will be held at The Roth Family JCC, 851 N. Maitland Ave. in Maitland.

At 5:45 p.m. there will be a Club member pre-reception and book signing. The program will begin at 7 p.m.

This event is open to the community. There will be dessert and coffee.

Yossi Klein Halevi is a senior fellow at the Shalom Hartman Institute in Jerusalem. Together with Imam Abdullah Antepli of Duke University, he co-directs the Institute's Muslim Leadership Initiative. Yossi is the author of "Like Dreamers: The Story of the Israeli Paratroopers Who Reunited Jerusalem" and "Divided a Nation," published by HarperCollins in 2013, which won the Jewish Book Council's Everett Family Foundation Jewish Book of the Year Award. Halevi writes for the op-ed pages of leading American newspapers.

Halevi's first book, "Memoirs of a Jewish Extremist," told the story of his teenage attraction to, and subsequent disillusionment with Jewish militancy. The New York Times called it "a book of burning importance." His next book is being released in May and titled "Letters to my Palestinian Neighbor."
