A new government in Israel. The Trump peace plan. Iran’s continued desire to obtain a nuclear weapon. All these topics and more will be at the focus of The Jerusalem Post’s annual conference in New York City.
The conference will take place this year on June 16, just weeks after the swearing-in of a new government in Israel.
With elections around the corner, it remains to be seen if Benjamin Netanyahu will continue to a fifth term as prime minister or if Benny Gantz, the former IDF chief of staff, will unseat him.
Confirmed speakers include Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked, Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY), former defense minister Avigdor Liberman and Acting Foreign Minister Israel Katz. More speakers will be announced in the coming weeks.
Other highlights at this year’s conference are a special address from Mosab Hassan Yousef, otherwise known as the “Son of Hamas”. Unfortunately, a scheduling conflict will prohibit the E Street Band's Max Weinberg from attending.
“The Jerusalem Post Conference is one of the premier events for the pro-Israel community in the United States,” said Ronit Hasin-Hochman, CEO of The Jerusalem Post Group. “It attracts Israeli and American political leaders, representatives of leading Jewish organizations and people who care about the future of Israel and the Jewish people.”
