Want to be better informed about the world? United Jewish Federation of Tidewater’s Jewish Community Relations Council offers one solution to learning: Israel Today’s On Assignment with Lahav Harkov.

Jerusalem Post’s senior contributing editor and diplomatic correspondent, Harkov shares her wealth of knowledge about Israeli current affairs—both domestically and internationally. One of her gifts is knowing how to break down potentially complicated figures and topics.

During the January 5 session with Harkov, participants discussed various topics, including Itamar Ben-Gvir’s visit to the Temple Mount complex, the international responses, and insight into the history and current status quo there. Harkov clarified the details regarding the different parties involved and explained that visitors of all backgrounds may go there, though there are specific guidelines to follow.

Participants asked questions during this off-the-record briefing. Future conversations on other current events are sure to be just as thought-provoking.

The Israel Today series is presented by the Jewish Community Relations Council of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater, Simon Family JCC, and Community Partners, including all local synagogues and Jewish agencies.
