In August 2005, Israel took an unprecedented step in its history and withdrew from the Gaza territory. Now amid Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s recent renewed plan for disengagement from the West Bank, unilateral withdrawal and its most vocal opponents, the religious national camp, still remain one of Israel’s most divisive and contentious internal debates. Our next session with Rabbi Shlomo Riskin will address the state of Israel’s religious nationalist camp post-disengagement and provide a rare glimpse into the perspective of this camp.
Rabbi Shlomo Riskin is a distinguished communal Rabbi for over 35 years and a foremost authority of the religious nationalist camp in Israel. In 1983, Rabbi Riskin left New York City to live in Efrat, a city in the Gush Etzion bloc in Israel's West Bank. He is the founder of the Ohr Torah Stone network of high schools, colleges, graduate programs, seminaries and rabbinical schools, which educates over 3,000 students each year from Israel, the U.S., England, Canada, Australia and South Africa. An author, teacher and activist, he has been chronicled in major media sources including Time Magazine, CNN, and the Jerusalem Post.
The sixth meeting of the Israel Analysis Group will take place on Thursday, December 7th, from 12pm-2pm, at the Hudson Institute, located at 1015 15th Street, NW, sixth floor, Washington, DC 20005. Lunch will be served.
