David Ben Gurion once famously said: “In Israel, in order to be a realist you must believe in miracles.” For the past 72 years, Israel has not only survived against all odds as the Jewish Nation State, it has flourished beyond any reasonable expectation. Beyond the miraculous, what mix of great leaders, strong convictions, and wise strategies enabled this historic feat? In honor of Israeli Independence Day, Dr. Ran Baratz—founding editor of Mida, prominent Israeli writer and teacher, and former close aide to Prime Minister Netanyahu—will present some of Israel’s defining features and achievements. He will explore how and why, in spite of so many challenges, enemies, and obstacles, Israel has become one of the happiest and most successful countries in the world.
