Such conversations can often turn heated. In his talk, Dr. Cohen will lay out a conversational strategy for gracefully maneuvering after friends or acquaintances have made provocative statements. You’ll learn proven tactics for getting people to think about your views on Jews and Israel without upsetting the gathering.
Jonah Cohen is the communications director for the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting and Analysis (CAMERA). He holds a PhD in philosophy and religion from the University of London. He has written for many publications, including the New Republic, the Jerusalem Post, and the Hill.
