Morning Presentation - On War and Peace
November 19, 2017 –
Temple Beth Hatfiloh is honored to welcome Emanuel Ben-David as our Visiting Scholar on Sunday, November 5th. A native Israeli, Emanuel has unique insights to share with us. He will speak in the morning during Beit Sefer and at its conclusion. Please join us for one or, if you can, both
presentations. We hope to offer a catered lunch, with details to be arranged. You are of course welcome to bring a brown bag.
In the morning presentation at 10:30 am, Emanuel will walk us through events and situations that rocked Israel, leading to the 1967 Six Day War. That war has ramifications that continue to affect the possibilities for peace to this day. This year marks the war's 50th anniversary.
In the afternoon presentation at 1:00 pm, Emanuel will describe his personal experience working for decades for Rafael Advanced Defense Systems, one of the three major defense contractors in Israel. Among the technologies and products he worked on were the Iron Dome and David’s Sling, two of the three layers of Israel’s missile defense architecture. Emanuel will also give an example of how defense technology has been transposed to the medical arena, providing life-saving breakthroughs.
