Israel at 60 - the Strange Experience of Jewish Sovereignty
Apr 6 2008


Keynote Address: Bernard-Henri Levy, Philosopher, Journalist, Author
Moderated by Paul Berman, writer in residence, New York University

After the Exile, Jews did not experience sovereignty for thousands of years until the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948.  Levy brings his formidable intellect to the questions: Why does the new Jewish sovereignty rattel man Gentiles?  Why does it rattle many Jews?
