ISRAELI PEACE ACTIVIST, AUTHOR, JOURNALIST ON TOUR IN MONTANA AND WYOMING
For those who can make it, Israeli peace activist, author, and columnist for the Jerusalem Post, Gershon Baskin, will be in Bozeman on the afternoon and evening of November 8, in Missoula on the afternoon of November 9, and in Jackson Hole on November 10. Gershon is probably best known for negotiating the release of Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, which negotiations became the subject of a well-known book. We were able to bring him here through the partnership of the three communities.
The information about the Bozeman talks (one free and open to the public, one with dinner by RSVP) is at http://www.bethshalombozeman.org. If there are those from other Montana Jewish communities that wish to attend, we can try to assist with housing. The information about the Missoula talk has been put up by Laurie on Har Shalom’s facebook page.
