3) Mark your calendars for the Jerusalem Post Annual Conference which is happening on September 24 at 7PM Israel time (12PM Eastern Time). It's an incredible lineup of Israeli and Jewish leaders from Israel's President Reuven Rivlin and Alternate Prime Minister and Defense Minister Benny Gantz, Israel's Foreign, Intelligence and Environment Ministers and Leader of the Opposition, Ambassadors, presidents of major Jewish organizations, plus a dear friend of mine, the Head of Public Policy for Facebook Israel and the Jewish Diaspora, Jordana Cutler. The conference will focus on the the following:

  • The upcoming US presidential election and its impact on the alliance between Israel and the United States

  • Israel-US relations before the presidential election

  • Israel and COVID-19 - could it have been managed differently?

  • Economic growth in the shadow of coronavirus: Can Israel recover?

  • Technology and Corona - Israeli inventions that can help defeat the virus

  • Missiles and nuclear weapons - can Iran be stopped?

  • Conversion, the Western Wall, civil marriage and immigration

  • The impact of modern life on nature and the environment and its implications

  • Israel and the Diaspora: Challenges and Opportunities

You can watch the direct broadcast at www.jpost.com.

4) Recently the Chief Rabbi of South Africa, Warren Goldstein, has continued his conversations with important Jewish leaders. Here are two of his most recent ones. The first is with Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks, the former Chief Rabbi of the UK, and who I consider to be the foremost Jewish ethicist and educator of

our time. The second one is with noted historian and former Israeli Ambassador to the United States Michael Oren as well as Israel's former Israeli Ambassador to the UN Dore Gold about the Abraham Accord, Israel's peace deal with the UAE (since the talk Bahrain has agreed to sign a deal with Israel as well).
