Israel: The Next 70 Years

Professor Alan M. Dershowitz has been called “the nation’s most peripatetic civil-liberties lawyer” and one of its “most distinguished defenders of individual rights;” “the best-known criminal lawyer in the world;” “the top lawyer of last resort.”

Dershowitz has been coined “America’s most public Jewish defender” and “Israel’s single most visible defender – the Jewish state’s lead attorney in the court of public opinion.”

Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel said: “If there had been a few people like Alan Dershowitz during the 1930s and 1940s, the history of European Jewry might have been different.”

Professor Dershowitz is the author of 35 fiction and non-fiction works with a worldwide audience, including The New York Times #1 bestseller Chutzpah. Other best sellers include: The Case for Israel, The Case for Peace, The First Amendment in an Age of Terrorism, and The Case for Moral Clarity: Israel, Hamas and Gaza.

Dershowitz will sign complimentary copies of Abraham: The World’s First (But Certainly Not Last) Jewish Lawyer during the dessert reception.

All households receive a complimentary photo taken with Alan Dershowitz. Photos by Joan Heffler Photography.

$36 per person | Dinner & Dessert Reception
