Montreal - April 11, 2016
Please join us on Monday, April 11 at Concordia University to learn about “The Rise and Fall of Moshe Sharett: the War that Abruptly Ended the 23-year Coalition between David Ben-Gurion and Moshe Sharett”.
Moshe Sharett, one of Israel’s founding politicians, its second Prime Minister and its first Foreign Minister, was erudite, multi-lingual and the consummate gentleman-diplomat. His greatest legacy was to have laid the foundations of diplomacy of the new state during its first decade. Join us in learning more about this remarkable personality, and how he and David Ben-Gurion, who had worked with common goals for decades, ultimately clashed.
This lecture, which is co-sponsored by CABGU and Concordia’s Azrieli Institute of Israel Studies, features Yaakov Sharett, Moshe’s son and Founder and Director of the Moshe Sharett Heritage Society, Dr. Neil Caplan, Affiliate of Concordia’s Dept. of History, Dr. Avi Bareli of BGU’s Research Institute for the Study of Israel and Zionism and Dr. Csaba Nikolenyi, Director of the Azrieli Institute of Israel Studies.
