Israel and the Middle East. What Now?
Event Date and Time:
February 23, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Beth Torah Benny Rok Campus Culture Club is pleased to welcome Shoshana Bryen, Senior Director of the Jewish Policy Center?
Bryen is a leading specialist in Middle East affairs. The depth and breadth of her knowledge and understanding, along with her ability to clearly present facts without political overtones or wishful thinking, makes her a particularly eloquent speaker.
Formerly Executive Director and Senior Director for Security Policy at the Jewish Institute for National Security of America (JINSA), Bryen was author of the widely republished JINSA Reports. She has worked with the Strategic Studies Institute of the U.S. Army War College and the Institute for National Security Studies in Tel Aviv, and lectured at the National Defense University in Washington.
Bryen coordinated programs in the Middle East that allowed more than 450 U.S. military officers to engage in discussions of issues that both unite and divide the United States, Israel and Jordan. She also created a program to take cadets and midshipmen of U.S. service academies to Israel for a three-week work/study program giving hundreds of future officers a positive, in-depth experience in Israel. She has taken Turkish and Israeli military officers to speak at the U.S. service academies and has lectured at the academies as well.
In addition to the JINSA Reports, Bryen’s work has appeared in The Wall Street Journal, the New York Sun and Defense News, to name a few, and Culture Club is fortunate to have the opportunity to hear her perspectives.
