Topic: How American Can Israel Become?
Prof. Ilan Troen will use the Declaration of Independence of Israel and the United States to explain what is shared and what is unique about both societies. Given the frequent critique of Israel by Americans, including Jews, Prof. Troen will give attention to how much change in Israel can be reasonably expected.
