AIPAC Invites Community to March 9 Briefing on Israel’s Economic Miracle

The American Israel Public Affairs Committee invites the community to attend a briefing, “Start-Up Nation: The Story of Israel’s Economic Miracle,” with featured speaker Dan Senor, on Tuesday, March 9, at Standard Country Club. There will be a dessert reception at 6:30 p.m. and the program will begin at 7.

Senor is an adjunct senior fellow for Middle East studies at the Council on Foreign Relations and has long been involved in policy, politics and business in the Middle East.

As a senior foreign policy adviser to the U.S. government, he was one of the longest-serving civilian officials in Iraq, for which he was awarded the highest civilian honor by the Pentagon.


Senor’s analytical pieces are frequently published by the Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Weekly Standard and Time.

He and Saul Singer are co-authors of the book, Start-Up Nation: The Story of Israel’s Economic Miracle, which addresses the trillion-dollar question: How is it that Israel – a country of 7.1 million people, only 60 years old, surrounded by enemies, in a constant state of war since its founding, with no natural resources – produces more start-up companies than large, peaceful and stable nations like Japan, China, India, Korea, Canada and the UK?

This event is open to the community and no gift is required. Dietary laws will be observed. The first 150 families to RSVP will receive a free copy of Start Up Nation, and Senor will sign books after his presentation.

Please RSVP by Friday, March 5, to Seth Baron at AIPAC, (770) 541-7610 or

AIPAC is an American organization with a principal mission to lobby the U.S. government about legislation that strengthens the relationship between the United States and Israel.
