Iran, ISIS, and the Changing Middle East: Implications for Israel and the US with Ken Stein
Since 1977, Professor Kenneth W. Stein has taught Middle Eastern history, political science and Israel studies at Emory University, where he holds a joint appointment in the History and Political Science Departments. Stein is the author of dozens of scholarly publications, including The Land Question in Palestine, and a 1400 page documentary reader, History Politics and Diplomacy of the Arab-Israeli Conflict. Dr. Stein has also received many awards for teaching excellence, mentoring students, and internationalizing the Emory curriculum.
During the first fourteen years of the 21st century, the Middle East remains awash with change. Autocratic Arab leaders have been pushed from power, some Arab states are imploding. Confessional, tribal, ethnic and religious identities have accompanied fanatical Islam and virulent anti-Semitism. Has the Arab-Israeli conflict already become a theological one? However you answer the question, there are dramatic implications for Israel, the US, and the region for decades to come. Is the US—Israeli relationship strained, or is it only personal between leaders? Either way, what are the possible intermediate and long term implications for both countries?
Sunday, April 19th at 9:30am at Young Israel of Toco Hills. This event is free to attend, breakfast is available for $5 members, $8 non-members when registering by April 16th. RSVP by clicking here.

YITH Book Club - Give & Take by Adam Grant
Join us for a YITH Book Club discussion led by Jay Cinnamon and Gabby Sirner-Cohen at the home of Mindy and Jay Cinnamon on Sunday, May 3rd at 7:30pm.
The book “Give and Take” by Adam Grant is a best-seller book that has nothing to do with Jewish life and yet has everything to do with Jewish life. An engaging read, it leads one to examine his/her own personality traits, and, along the way, discover the key ingredients to crafting healthy and vibrant family relationships and a spiritually meaningful community construct.
If you would like to borrow a copy of “Give and Take” please contact the shul office or email@example.com.
