Join the Baltimore Jewish Council and Baltimore Zionist District for The Dialogue of Civilizations: A Fireside Chat, with His Excellency, Ahmed Obaid Al Mansoori, and Dr. Avi Abraham Benlolo.
Through an open and honest discussion, we will cover a wide range of topics including Israel-Arab relations; advancing The Abraham Accords; Countering Antisemitism in Arab societies and promoting Holocaust education in the Middle East. The Dialogue of Civilizations will present an optimistic vantage point while at the same time exploring the dynamics of powers across the complicated multiple horizontal and vertical levels in the Middle East and how it may impact global foreign policies.
