Jewish National Fund-USA Reading Series: Lioness: Golda Meir and the Nation of Israel

Hosted By: Jewish National Fund - USA (JNF)

Join Jewish National Fund-USA IsraelCast host Steven Shalowitz and author Francine Klagsbrun for a live Q&A session about her book, “Lioness: Golda Meir and the Nation of Israel.” The definitive biography for one of Israel’s greatest leaders, Lioness covers Golda Meir’s life from her birth in tsarist Russia to her rise as an iron-willed, chain smoking Prime Minister as well as life after her political career. Author Francine Klagsbrun covers Meir’s entire life, with a particularly astute analysis of her participation in the Yom Kippur War using newly available documents from the time period. Available for purchase on Amazon. Purchasing the book prior to the event is not required, but recommended. Zoom link provided upon registration. Free to attend. Questions? Contact Sarah Cohen at scohen@jnf.org or 212-879-9305 x 243.
