Henry Kissinger: “The Arc of a Covenant is an extraordinary contribution to the growing literature on the complexities and opportunities of U.S. foreign policy in Europe and the Middle East.”
George Will: “Walter Russell Mead is today’s most penetrating writer on geopolitics because he also is an extraordinarily accomplished historian.”
Niall Ferguson: “No writer on the complexities of American foreign policy is better at getting to the heart of the matter than Walter Russell Mead.”
Please join us on Thursday March 2, 2023 at the Palm Beach Synagogue (120 North County Road) for this exciting and important event. Wall Street Journal columnist and Bard College Professor Walter Russell Mead will speak about his 2022 book, The Arc of a Covenant: The United States, Israel, and the Fate of the Jewish People, and answer questions from the audience.
Professor Mead is just now returning from Israel, where he participated in a wide-ranging interview at the Tikvah Fund’s Hertog Forum with Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu on the history of the U.S.-Israel alliance, Israel’s role in global affairs, and the Arab-Israeli peace process.
This is the third and final event of the inaugural season of the Levy Forum for Open Discourse. My wife Karen and I are delighted now to have a home in Palm Beach and to support this forum for the community, where we can have fearless discussion of the most urgent social and political topics of our times. We hope you can join us next week for this special event!
