A prominent political analyst, Shavit is known for his in-depth interviews and thought-provoking articles with world leaders, including Shimon Peres, Ariel Sharon and Benjamin Netanyahu. In recent years, Shavit has become one of the most influential voices in Israel’s public arena. He will discuss his bestselling book, My Promised Land: The Triumph and Tragedy of Israel.

"As we celebrate our 110th year as a Federation community, may we continue to engage in critical and civil discourse in order to be a source of strength and support for people in Cleveland, Israel and around the world,” said Kyla Epstein Schneider, Event Chair.
