“The Case for Israel – The Case for Peace” – Lecture by Alan Dershowitz (video)

  • Submitted on December 30, 2012

On June 7, 2005, Prof. Alan Dershowitz addressed a standing-room-only crowd in the Gonda Brain Research Center Auditorium at Bar-Ilan University. The lecture was broadcast live via interactive video conference under the auspices of the Lookstein Center for Jewish Education in the Diaspora, to the Union of Jewish Students and the London School of Jewish Studies.

A world-renowned and prolific lawyer, Dershowitz is the Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law at the Harvard Law School, where he has taught since the 1960s. Prof. Dershowitz is perhaps most famous among the general public for his involvement in famous criminal law cases but more importantly, he is known for his staunch support of Israel and activism again anti-Semitism.

This lecture and video conference was made possible through the generosity of David Gradel of London, England.
