About Our Speakers:
Among his first acts, President Trump appointed his long-time advisor and then-chief Legal Officer Jason Greenblatt as an Assistant to the President and the White House Special Envoy to the Middle East. In this role, Greenblatt served as one of the chief architects of the “Peace To Prosperity” plan between Israel and the Palestinians and between Israel and its Arab neighbors.
Jason has spoken in front of the UN Security Council numerous times about the tremendous bias against Israel at the UN, emphasizing Israel’s absolute right to defend itself, condemning Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad and criticizing the UN for its failure to issue such condemnations and for not making clear that the path to a comprehensive resolution to the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians will only come to pass, if at all, through direct negotiations between the parties.
During the nearly three years that Jason worked at the White House he traveled extensively throughout the Middle East, Europe and elsewhere meeting with heads of state, foreign ministers and other political leaders, top business executives, and a large array of other key influencers to re-educate people about the conflict and its complexities and to begin to build the bridge necessary to achieve peace.
Prior to joining the White House, Jason spent twenty years in senior positions at The Trump Organization. At the end of February, Jason became a partner at Israeli venture capital firm Our Crowd, where he will focus on creating what he calls a Middle East 2.0, building economic bridges between Israel and its Arab neighbors.
Bret L. Stephens joined The New York Times as an Op-Ed columnist in April 2017. His column appears Thursday and Saturday.
Mr. Stephens came to The Times after a long career with The Wall Street Journal, where he was most recently deputy editorial page editor and, for 11 years, a foreign affairs columnist. Before that, he was editor in chief of The Jerusalem Post. At The Post he oversaw the paper’s news, editorial and digital operations and its international editions, and also wrote a weekly column. He has reported from around the world and interviewed scores of world leaders.
Mr. Stephens is the author of “America in Retreat: The New Isolationism and the Coming Global Disorder,” released in November 2014. He is is the recipient of numerous awards and distinctions, including two honorary doctorates and the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for commentary. He was raised in Mexico City and holds a B.A. from the University of Chicago and an MSc. from the London School of Economics. He and his wife, Corinna da Fonseca-Wollheim, a music critic for The Times, live with their three children in New York and Hamburg, Germany.
Rabbi Shmuley Boteach is a vocal advocate for Israel, and expert in relationships and Jewish spirituality; his books have been translated into 17 languages and he lectures and makes TV and radio appearances all over the world. He served as host of the award-winning national TV show Shalom in the Home on TLC, The Shmuley Show on 77 WABC in NYC, the most listened-to radio station in America, and The Rabbi Shmuley Show on the Oprah and Friends Radio Network. He is also the international best-selling author of 23 books, including most recently, Renewal: A Guide to the Values-Filled Life and Ten Conversations You Need to Have with Your Children. His book Kosher Sex was an international blockbuster and is widely regarded as one of the most important relationship books of the past two decades. His recent books on the American family, Parenting With Fire and Ten Conversations You Need to Have With Your Children were both launched on The Oprah Winfrey Show.
Rabbi Boteach is also the founder of the World Values Network, an organization which aims to bring Jewish values to mainstream American culture via the media, politics, and the arts. He has been profiled in many of the world’s leading publications, including Time Magazine, Newsweek, The New York Times and The Washington Post.
