Israeli Ambassador to U.S. To Speak on Campus

Michael Oren, the Israeli Ambassador to the United States, will speak on campus tonight about American foreign policy and the role of Israel as one of America’s most important allies in the Middle-East. The event is scheduled for 7:00 pm in 111 Wartik and is structured as an open forum. Oren will be available for questions that anyone might have.

Oren, who was born in the United States and raised in New Jersey, has served as ambassador since July of 2009. Oren immigrated to Israel in 1979 and joined the Israel Defense Forces. He fought in the 1982 Lebanon War and served as an Israeli liaison officer to the United State’s Sixth Fleet in the Gulf War. He has recently returned to the United States to teach as a visiting professor at Harvard, Yale, and Georgetown University.

The event is sponsored by Penn State Hillel, Penn State College Republicans, Jewish Studies Department, Penn State College Democrats, Schreyer Honors College, Presidential Leadership Academy, and the Liberal Arts Undergraduate Council.
