Against all odds, Israel became a state in 1948. This is the behind-the-scenes story of Harry Truman’s relationship with Zionist leaders and the “founding fathers” of Israel and their efforts to establish statehood and secure U.S. support for Israel. It is a tale of high political intrigue, important friendships that would cement a vital international alliance, and moral courage from one of the most unlikely champions of the Jewish people. Join Robert Watson, award-winning author, professor, historian, and media analyst for this gripping lecture with Q&A. Thank you to The Temple-Tifereth Israel for their community partnership.
