Condoleezza Rice JPDS-NC Yitzhak Rabin Memorial Lecture: Perspectives on Peace and War

May 3, 2009 • 7:00 pm ET
  • This event has passed.

In her first return appearance in Washington since leaving the State Department, Condoleezza Rice reflects on her experiences in the Middle East, and her commitment to the education of children as a force against misunderstanding, terror, and war. As National Security Advisor to a war-time president and then as Secretary of State for the United States, Dr. Rice has pursued peace while defending war. To honor the memory of the great warrior and peacemaker Yitzhak Rabin z”l, former Secretary Rice joins Leon Wieseltier, literary editor of The New Republic, in a far-ranging discussion on how to think morally and responsibly about the ideal of peace and the reality of war and on how to teach these perspectives in our classrooms. This is the Fourth Annual Yitzhak Rabin Memorial Lecture of the Jewish Primary Day School of the Nation’s Capital.
