Long Event Description (condense if needed): Join Jewish National Fund-USA IsraelCast host Steven Shalowitz and author Francine Klagsbrun for a live Q&A session about her book, Lioness: Golda Meir and the Nation of Israel. The definitive biography for one of Israel’s greatest leaders, Lioness covers Golda Meir’s life from her birth in tsarist Russia to her rise as an iron-willed, chain smoking Prime Minister as well as life after her political career. Author Francine Klagsbrun covers Meir’s entire life, with a particularly astute analysis of her participation in the Yom Kippur War using newly available documents from the time period. Available for purchase on Amazon. Purchasing the book prior to the event is not required, but recommended.
About JNF-USA’s Reading Series: Jewish National Fund-USA Reading Series brings together readers and Jewish authors for a lively and engrossing virtual discussion, moderated by JNF-USA IsraelCast host Steven Shalowitz. Every month, a new book about Judaism and/or Israel becomes the subject of a conversation that creates and solidifies friendships while giving people a chance to flex their intellectual muscles from the comfort of their own home.
