The Iran Deal: The Good, The Bad, and the Day After Community Q&A at SWFS
As Congress approaches its historic vote on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, join the Israel Committee of Stephen Wise Free Synagogue for a community Q&A on the implications of the Iran deal for Israel and the world, and the Jewish community's role in promoting Israel's security, as well as its alliance with the United States in the future. The insightful discussion will focus in detail on the risks and benefits of the JCPOA, and strategies for the Jewish community to strengthen American support for Israel, home to half of the world's Jews, in the face of increasing dangers. Michael Salberg, Director of International Affairs for the Anti-Defamation League, and Rabbi Neal Borovitz will lead the discussion.
