Forthcoming Events

The Forum sponsors lunches, webinars, live briefings, parlor meetings, and conference calls featuring its staff and fellows, former government officials, scholars, journalists, and others with insights into the Middle East and Islamism. Speakers delve deep into critical issues, surpassing what is found in mass media – always with an eye toward American interests. Most briefings occur along the New York-Philadelphia-Washington, D.C. corridor.

Audio recordings and written summaries of past lectures are available.

Nine Months After October 7

Gregg Roman will reflect on Israel's standing in the Middle East nine months after a period marked by a seven-front war and the nation's position in the aftermath of these conflicts. Roman has assiduously followed tensions in the region during this time, including Israel's border disputes with Lebanon, Houthi efforts to choke Western shipping through the Red Sea, Shi'ite militias attacking US troops in Iraq and Syria, ongoing strife in Gaza and the West Bank, and the continuing threat posed by the Iranian menace. Meanwhile, with the Biden administration in the White House, questions arise about the current trajectory of U.S.-Israel relations. The global stage watches attentively, observing how the United States, under the Biden administration, has shaped and will continue to shape its policy towards Israel and the broader Middle East.
