Event Co-sponsored by Darchei Noam & Or Zarua Philly


Dr. Ian Lustick is a leading scholar of comparative, international, and Middle Eastern politics.  He is the author or editor of twenty books and dozens of articles, mostly focused on Israeli-Arab affairs.  He is a founder and past president of the Association for Israel Studies, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, and a consultant for most administrations since that of Jimmy Carter, during which he served as a State Department analyst of Israeli and Palestinian affairs.  His most recent book is Paradigm Lost:  From Two-State Solution to One-State Reality (2019).

In honor of Yom Ha-atzmaut Darchei Noam is committing to an educational exploration of the history of Israel in all its complexities and nuances. May tonight’s program be the first of many where we learn together in an environment that promotes curiosity, compassion, and respect for a diversity of viewpoints.

Please know that all programs offered are for educational purposes only and do not reflect a singular viewpoint for the congregation of Darchei Noam. Darchei Noam is a safe space where differences in political opinion are valued and honored. Please send further suggestions for educational opportunities related to Israel to Rabbi Danielle at
