Bennett discusses U.S. Middle East policy at Brunch & Learn

Israel and Middle East Policy will be at the top of the agenda at the JCC Brunch & Learn on Wednesday, March 14, at 10:30 a.m.

Matthew Bennett, Development Director for the Middle East Institute, will speak about policy recommendations that his organizations and other Middle East policy think tanks are giving to Donald Trump, and how they would affect Israel.

After Bennett’s talk, the extraordinary film “In Our Hands: The Battle for Jerusalem,” will be shown on the big screen. The movie tells the story of Israel’s 55th Paratrooper Brigade and how the Israeli Defense Forces risked everything for the sake of their homeland. With firsthand interviews and historical reenactments, this powerful docudrama focuses on the commitment and sacrifice of the soldiers who reunited Jerusalem.
