Award Winning Author Daniel Gordis to Address UJA Aspen Valley

Daniel Gordis, considered by the Jerusalem Post as one of the fifty most influential Jews in the world, will be the keynote speaker on July 25 at UJA Aspen Valley’s annual fundraiser and cocktail reception.

Gordis is the winner of two National Jewish Book Awards for “Israel: A Concise History of a Nation Reborn“and “Saving Israel: How the Jewish People Can Win a War that May Never End.” A regular columnist for the Jerusalem Post and Bloomberg View, Gordis is the author of more than ten books on Jewish thought and Israeli current events, including “Menachem Begin: The Battle for Israel’s Soul” and “If a Place Can Make You Cry: Dispatches from an Anxious State.” He is the Senior Vice President and the Koret Distinguished Fellow at Shalem College in Jerusalem and has been named by The Forward as “one of the most respected Israel analysts around.”

JEWISHcolorado’s new President and CEO, Rabbi Jay Strear, will also attend and make opening remarks. Strear joined JEWISHcolorado on July 9, most recently serving as Senior Vice President at American Jewish University in Los Angeles.

UJA Aspen Valley will host Gordis at a special evening event on July 25, 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm at the Aspen Chabad Jewish Community Center to raise funds for the Jewish world and celebrate the unique UJA Aspen Valley community. For more information or to register, JEWISHcolorado.org/UJAAspenValley.
