A virtual keynote with Dr. Hillel Newman, Consul General of Israel to the Pacific Southwest, about the future of U.S.-Israel relations and Israeli foreign policy.

The United States and Israel are tightly bound by way of history, as well as robust economic and security ties. Despite lacking a formal defense arrangement, the two countries have treated one another as allies through successive administrations. With the U.S. election on the horizon, Israel’s unity government may be witnessing two transitions. The first would come if Vice President Joe Biden defeats President Donald Trump in November. The second will be in October 2021, when Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will step down to make way for Deputy Prime Minister & Defense Minister Benny Gantz to assume the office. Please join us as we discuss the future of U.S.-Israel relations and Israeli foreign policy.
