Westport, CT

AIPAC Southern Connecticut cordially invites you to a briefing with Avi Jorisch.

A Conversation With Avi Jorisch, author of Thou Shalt Innovate: How Israeli Ingenuity Repairs the World

Avi Jorisch is a renowned expert on the Mideast. In March 2018, his new book, Thou Shalt Innovate, will be published. It tells the remarkable story of how Israeli technology has helped the entire world, and explores why Israeli innovators of all faiths feel compelled to make the world better. Israel is playing a disproportionate role in helping solve some of the world’s biggest challenges by tapping into the nation’s soul and the spirit of tikkun olam. Mr. Jorisch is a Senior Fellow at the American Foreign Policy Council and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. Previously, he served as a policy advisor at the Treasury Department’s office of Terrorism and Financial Intelli­gence, as a liaison to the Department of Homeland Security and as an Arab media and terrorism consultant for the Department of Defense.
