A J Street View from Israel of Recent Events
October 14 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
J Street Sacramento Region Chapter hosts Nadav Tamir
The US withdraws from Afghanistan- What are the foreign policy implications for Israel/Palestine? A new Administration in Washington and a new Administration in Jerusalem – What will the future hold? How Israel might change in a post-Netanyahu era when Naftali Bennet and Yair Lapid lead a coalition government made up of centrists, right-wingers and, for the first time, members of an Arab party, Ra’am (United Arab List)?
Nadav Tamir, Executive Director of J Street Israel, will share his insights on what he believes is likely to evolve over the coming months.
Nadav has dedicated his career to public service, joining the Israeli Foreign Ministry in 1993 and serving in multiple roles, including Political Officer at the Israeli Embassy in Washington, DC. In 2006, he was named Israeli Consul General to New England, a position he held until 2010.
Upon returning to Israel, he joined the Policy Planning Unit of the Israeli Foreign Ministry where he served until accepting the position of senior adviser to the president under Shimon Peres.
Nadav is an adviser for international affairs at the Peres Center for Peace and Innovation. He’s a member of the board of the Mitvim think tank and the steering committee of the Geneva Initiative.
Nadav earned his MA from the Harvard Kennedy School of Government as a Wexner fellow and his BA in philosophy and political science from the Hebrew University.
He currently resides in Givatayim with his wife, Dr. Ronit Tamir, and three children.
