The Begin Symposium
June 6, 2021 – Online Event

12:00 PM – 3:00 PM US Eastern time
7:00 PM – 10:00 PM Israel time 

Menachem Begin's legacy is complex, but his commitment to principles over expediency, and the charisma, courage and passion that were the touchstones of his political and personal life, have much to teach us—about Israel, about Jewish peoplehood, and about strong, ethical leadership. 

This international symposium, coinciding with the 40th Anniversary of the Osirak Nuclear Reactor Bombing, will examine Menachem Begin's legacy and relevance in today's world, with a focus on key elements of his leadership. With the real and rising threat of antisemitism in the US and around the world, and crises of democracy across the globe, there has never been a more relevant time to study the legacy of a man who was both uncompromising in his defense of Jewish rights; and committed to the values of freedom and democracy.

Join us for this inaugural event.
