Middle East upheaval to be discussed at Jewish Community Center
The Chabad Jewish Community Center of Folsom is proud to host Professor Barry Rubin at the Jewish Community Center in Folsom.
Rubin, professor at the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya, Israel, director of the Global Research and International Affairs Center, and a senior fellow at the International Policy Institute for Counterterrorism, will be at the community center, 302 South Lexington Avenue, Suite B, at 2 p.m. on Nov. 6.
Rubin’s lecture, “From The Upheavals of 2011 To The Crises of 2012,” will explain how the killing of Muammar Gaddafi affects the United States. He will also share information about Iran’s nuclear program and discuss the Palestinian’s statehood bid and constant threat of terrorism in Israel. His lecture will also include a Q&A session. This is the first time this world class expert will appear in this area.
Rubin has written and edited more than 40 books on the Middle East and U.S. foreign policy, with publishers including Harvard, Yale, Oxford and Cambridge University Press. His next book, “Israel: An Introduction” will be published in early 2012.
