Monday, Aug 8, 7:30 p.m. Book Talk by JHJC member Cliff Sobin, author of The Pivotal Years: Israel and the Arab World - 1966 - 1977.  Cliff will speak about the eleven-year journey from Israel's confrontation with an Arab world bent on her destruction to a fragile peace that offered hope for compromise rather than conflict. Why the main events of those eleven years - the Six-Day War, the War of Attrition, Jordan's war with the PLO, the Yom Kippur War, and the rise of the PLO and the Settler movement - were interrelated and why understanding what happened during those eleven years, is a necessary foundation for forming opinions concerning the peace process today. At the JHJC Center in the Centennial Bldg, 610 W. Broadway, Jackson. Free.
