“David Axelrod’s talk promises to be personally and politically insightful,” said Ellen M. Umansky, PhD, director of the Bennett Center. “He will share with us details of his own Jewish journey, his road to the White House with Barack Obama, and what he believes to be the current relationship between the American Jewish community and Israel.”
