Shirley C. Green Memorial Symposium – Israel’s Edge: The IDF’s Most Elite Unit—Talpiot

31st Annual Shirley C. Green Memorial Symposium

Israel’s Edge: The IDF’s Most Elite Unit—Talpiot

Rescheduled from 2017

Thursday, September 13, 12:30pm
Free To All

How will Israel keep its strategic edge over an increasingly dangerous Iran? Israel’s answer is a special and secretive military unit called Talpiot. The few soldiers selected for Talpiot are taught how to think with advanced level physics, math, and computer science. After leaving the army, Talpiots are a major force in the Israeli economy.l

JASON GEWIRTZ is an executive producer for the business network CNBC. Jason has covered Israel and Israeli business extensively. He worked for CNBC from northern Israel during the Second Lebanon War in 2006 and covered attacks from Gaza on southern Israeli towns, examining the economic impact.

Dessert Reception following program. Limited seating—advance registration strongly encouraged.

 

The Shirley C. Green Memorial Symposium is presented in recognition of her lifelong devotion and efforts on behalf of Israel. The program is made possible through the generosity of the late Walter Green.
