The spring season of live events in English in The Times of Israel Presents series is in full swing.
On April 25, Jerusalem writers Haim Watzman (“Necessary Stories”) and Matti Friedman (“Pumpkinflowers”) discussed their work in our monthly series Personal Pages: Meet the Authors, at the Tower of David. Jewish Agency Chairman Natan Sharansky, the Russian-born ex-minister and former Prisoner of Zion, spoke with Matthew Kalman at a sold out event at Beit Shmuel on Sunday, May 7, about his life, work and the major issues facing Israel and the Jewish people. On May 15, our guests for Personal Pages: Meet the Authors at the Tower of David, were Anne-Marie O’Connor (“Lady in Gold”) and Ora Ahimeir (“Bride”). And on Sunday, May 28, ToI’s David Horovitz interviewed Deputy Minister Michael Oren, Israel’s former ambassador to Washington, in the wake of President Trump’s visit to Israel.
Nitsana Darshan-Leitner’s latest target is Palestinian Olympic Committee and Fatah Central Committee Chairman Jibril Rajoub. Her lawsuit accuses Rajoub of being responsible for the death of a Palestinian-American allegedly tortured to death in 1995 after being arrested by security forces under Rajoub’s command. She will discuss her multi-million-dollar legal cases against terror suspects and their financiers at Beit Shmuel on Sunday, June 4. This event is co-produced with Nefesh B’Nefesh. Advance tickets NIS 50, available HERE.
Future Jerusalem events include authors Jessica Steinberg and Shirley Graetz (June 19) and former US ambassador Dan Shapiro (July 2). And Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman will be on stage in Tel Aviv on June 15.
