Men's Club Brunch with Special Speaker at Temple Emanu-El
Tuesday, January 15, 2013 • 1:56pm
A lively discussion of the volatile Middle East should help warm up the last Sunday of the month, January 27, at 10 AM when the Temple Emanu-El Men’s Club welcomes Jared Silverman to be the guest speaker at the first Sunday Brunch of the new year.
Mr. Silverman writes a bi-weekly column entitled Right Thinking for the New Jersey Jewish News. The topic of his talk will be “The Middle East: Arab Revolutions, Iran and Israel”. The exact subject matters to be addressed will depend on unfolding developments in this volatile region, but may include:
• The aftermath of the Egyptian referendum on the Muslim Brotherhood constitution.
• The Israeli Knesset elections which will be held on Jan 22, 5 days prior to the brunch.
• The situation in Syria
• Anything Iran does.
• Any outbreaks on Israel's borders.
• Relations between the US/Obama and Israel/Netanyahu. In this regard, there may be news coming out of the confirmation hearings for Kerry as Sec of State and, especially, Hagel as Sec of Defense.
