The Ariel Avrech Memorial Lecture Presents Michael Medved

The Eleventh Annual Ariel Avrech Yahrtzeit Lecture took place on Sunday June 8, 2014 at the Young Israel of Century City.

The title of Michael Medved’s lecture is: “Shifting Alliances: Why Liberals No Longer Reliably Support Israel — And Conservatives Do.”

We will leave this up for a few days.

May Ariel’s neshama have an aliyah.

Here are a few photos from the event.

I welcome all our guests, then introduce our speakers.

The Eleventh Annual Ariel Avrech Memorial Lecture was a huge success. Karen and I would like to thank Michael Medved for all his hard work and wisdom.

May we only share s’machot—happy occasions—together.

Comment Rules


Seraphic Secret is private property, that's right, it's an extension of our home, and as such, Karen and I have instituted two Seraphic Rules and we ask commentors to act respectfully.

  1. No profanity.
  2. No Israel bashing. We debate, we discuss, we are respectful. You know what Israel bashing is. The world is full of it. Seraphic Secret is one of the few places in the world that will not tolerate this form of anti-Semitism.

That's it. Break either of these rules and you will be banned.

    Thank you for posting. I remember Ariel Z’L from high school and to this day he still inspires myself and others.

      Yossi:

      It’s wonderful to hear from you. Karen and I think of you often and hope that you are doing well. If you are in LA, please come visit us. It’s been far too long.

    I just got back from WV to attend to the affairs of my late uncle. Sounds like a good lecture, Robert.

    I too share Karen’s question.

    I will listen to the lecture – than you for providing it!

    Excellent lecture.
    A small comment on history: Oscar Strauss was not the first Jewish cabinet officer in American history; rather, that honor goes to Judah P. Benjamin. There’s an interesting connection between that fact and Mr. Medved’s observations about Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina.

    Thank you for sharing this – may it be a z’chus (a source of merit) for Ariel. I’ll have some “enforced down time” this evening while my car’s in the shop, and I hope to watch/listen then. (Will there be an audio-only link?)
