Temple Sholom (300 East Putnam Avenue, Greenwich, CT) is excited to kick-off its 2021-2022 speaker series with special guest Former Ambassador Ron Dermer, who will lead an in-person discussion at Temple Sholom on Tuesday, October 19 at 7:00 pm.
Ambassador Dermer is an American-born Israeli political consultant and diplomat who served as the Israeli Ambassador to the United States from 2013 to 2021. He gave up his American citizenship in 2005 to become Israel’s economic envoy to the U.S. Additionally, Ambassador Dermer served as senior advisor to immediate past Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for four years.
