Israel's Challenges and Opportunities in a Changing Global Order

  • Congregation Shaare Zedek 212 West 93rd Street New York, NY, 10025 United States (map)

Sponsored by the David, Ursula, & Adina Michaeli Memorial Education Fund at Shaare Zedek

Shaare Zedek welcomes Gabriel Mitchell, the U.S. representative from Mitvim, the Israeli Institute for Regional Foreign Policies. Change is a constant in history, and recent geopolitical developments -- both in the Middle East and on the international stage -- will demand that countries adopt creative strategies in order to navigate a secure route through uncertain times. For Israel, this means adopting a new foreign policy that both maintains existing partnerships and establishes new relationships around the world. Join Mr. Mitchell for a conversation about the challenges and opportunities that Israel faces, and how the arrival of a new U.S. administration will impact the US-Israel bond.


Gabriel Mitchell's research interests include energy politics, Israeli foreign policy, Israel-Turkey relations, and Israel-US relations.

Before joining the Mitvim Institute, Mr. Mitchell was a research fellow at the Shalem Center and the Hudson Institute, as well as an editor at the Times of Israel. He has written extensively on Israel-Turkey relations and domestic Turkish and Israeli politics, publishing in The Jerusalem Post, The National Interest, The American Interest, Turkish Policy Quarterly, and The New Republic.

Mr. Mitchell holds an MA in political science from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and is currently completing his PhD in Government & International Affairs at Virginia Tech. He resides in Northern Virginia with his wife and daughter.

Join Shaare Zedek for Shabbat morning services at 9:30 am, children's services at 11:00 am, and a sponsored kiddush lunch around noon. This featured talk will begin after lunch, at approximately 12:45 pm. All are welcome, and donations are appreciated.
