U.S. – Israel Relations Under the Biden Administration and the Future of American Support for Israel
October 4 @ 8:30 pm
After over a year of only virtual events, the CSULB Jewish Studies Program is delighted to be hosting speakers again in person at the Alpert JCC (3801 E. Willow St., Long Beach, CA 90815). Our talks will be held in the auditorium and you are required to wear a mask to attend.
Our first speaker is Dr. Dov Waxman, the Director of the Y. and S. Nazarian Center for Israel Studies at UCLA. His talk will be on the topic: “U.S. – Israel Relations Under the Biden Administration and the Future of American Support for Israel.”
The United States has long been Israel’s closest and most important ally. After four harmonious years of U.S.-Israeli relations, during which the Trump administration was closely aligned with the Netanyahu government, there are now new leaders in Washington D.C. and Jerusalem and new challenges for the U.S.-Israeli relationship.
Professor Waxman will outline these challenges and discuss the trends shaping the future of the U.S.-Israeli relationship. He will argue that after decades of bipartisan American support for Israel, the bipartisan consensus concerning Israel is eroding. Consequently, American support for Israel is becoming more contentious and less certain. Its future cannot be taken for granted.
As always, Jewish Studies talks are free and open to the public. There is no need to RSVP. For more information, please contact me at Jeffrey.Blutinger@csulb.edu .
