service and was drafted in 2002, serving in the Nahal Brigade as
a sniper. He served two years in the West Bank, especially
Hebron, and one year in educating youth before their army
service. A day after he was discharged from the army, Dotan
became an activist in "Breaking the Silence."

STANDING FOR ISRAEL IN THE 21ST CENTURY:
A Discussion On the Role of American Jews

With DR. DAVID M. ELCOTT

Executive Director, Israel Policy Forum (IPF)

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 29, 2006

7 PM

Temple Beth Am
2632 NE 80th Street, Seattle

In the aftermath of the second Lebanon War, there are great
uncertainties for the future security of the state of Israel and
for the stability of the entire Middle East. At a time when
Palestinian society is in chaos and Israel is increasingly
facing dangerous threats, what can we do as American Jews to
support the Jewish state?

As Executive Director of Israel Policy Forum, Dr. David M.
Elcott regularly convenes significant leaders to address this
very question: How can American Jews best ensure the survival
and vitality of the state of Israel and the Jewish people?

If you have any specific questions or concerns please contact
Barbara Lahav at: bjlahav@comcast.net

Please join us for this unique discussion.

Brit Tzedek v'Shalom/Greater Seattle Chapter encourages all
members and supporters to participate in this important
discussion, sponsored by the Israel Policy Forum. IPF is one of
Brit Tzedek's foremost allies in promotion of a negotiated
Israeli-Palestinian peace.
