Up Close With Lior Raz

Hosted By: UJA-Federation of New York, 70 Faces Media, The New York Jewish Week

Join us for this New York exclusive opportunity to hear the riveting personal story and ideological priorities that drive Israeli writer/actor Lior Raz — the co-creator and star of the hugely popular series Fauda and the recently released Hit & Run.

This intimate conversation, moderated by renowned author Abigail Pogrebin, provides an opportunity to ask Raz about his firsthand experience in the IDF as a part of the elite Duvdevan unit where he operated as an Arab civilian in the Palestinian territories, his attempt to humanize the intractability of the Israeli/Palestinian impasse, how he balances writing and acting simultaneously, and his plans for his next project.

We’ll also learn about UJA’s ongoing commitment to the promise of a fully welcoming, democratic, thriving Jewish state and our investment in programs that promote economic, religious, and social inclusion.

 

More about our speakers:

Lior Raz– As an IDF veteran, an Arabic speaker, and a creative artist, Raz’s singular perspective enables him to shine a light on the striking commonalities between parties in conflict; the impact of PTSD not only on soldiers, but on the civilian population; and the importance teamwork and cooperation play in conflict resolution.
