Louisville Jewish/Israeli Author Series: Daniel Gordis

November 16, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Louisville Jewish/Israeli Author Series Presents:

Menachem Begin: The Battle for Israel’s Soul by Daniel Gordis
Sponsored by Adath Jeshurn and Jewish Heritage Fund for Excellence

A biography of the sixth prime minister of Israel that explains how this pre-state “terrorist” became the first Israeli leader to sign a peace treaty with an Arab country. Reviled as a fascist demagogue by his great rial Ben-Gurion, internationally admired as a statesman who became the first Israeli to win the Nobel Peace Prize, a proud Jew but not a conventionally religious one, Menachem Begin was a complex and controversial figure.
