Please join us for third conversation in our series, Montreal in Israel, with Gil Troy. This series engages in conversations with former Montrealers who made Aliyah (moved to Israel) and made a mark on Israel's society, whether it be big or small.
About the speaker
A distinguished scholar in North American history at McGill University currently living in Jerusalem, Gil Troy is an award-winning American presidential historian and a leading Zionist activist.
In the foreword to Troy’s latest book, The Zionist Ideas: Visions for the Jewish Homeland – Then, Now, Tomorrow, Natan Sharansky writes: “This magnificent work is the perfect follow-up to Arthur Hertzberg’s classic The Zionist Idea. Combining, like Hertzberg, a scholar’s eye and an activist’s ear, Gil Troy demonstrates that we now live in a world of Zionist Ideas, with many different ways to help Israel flourish as a democratic Jewish state.”
