The 2014 Dubin Lecture featuring Ambassador Ron Dermer

Wednesday, November 5, 2014 | 6:30 - 8:00 PM

Please join us for the Seventh Annual Richard and Elizabeth Dubin Lecture. We are honored that our distinguished guest this year will be Ambassador Ron Dermer, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s closest political advisor.

Ron Dermer was appointed as Israel's Ambassador to the United States in July 2013. In 2004, he co-authored with Natan Sharansky the best-selling book, “The Case for Democracy: The Power of Freedom to Overcome Tyranny and Terror,” which has been translated into ten languages. Having previously served in various diplomatic and governmental posts, Ambassador Dermer will speak on the nature of the Israel-US relationship and Israel’s strategic role in a rapidly changing Middle East.

This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required. Seating is first-come, first-served and registration does not guarantee admittance to the lecture - we are accepting more RSVPs than we have seats available in order to minimize empty seats. Arrive early to check in at will call and claim your ticket. Check-in will begin at 5 PM in the lobby of the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center and doors to the Gildenhorn Recital Hall will open at 6 PM.

All attendees must show a valid photo ID, and the ID must match the name you submit with your registration. All attendees must pick up their own tickets; we cannot give someone else your ticket to give to you later. If you do not arrive by 6:25 PM, your registration will be considered forfeited and any empty seats will be given to patrons waiting in a stand-by line. We cannot accommodate requests for late arrivals.

Please avoid bringing large backpacks and purses as all bags will be checked before entering the lecture. Once the lecture begins, there will be no reentry permitted should you choose to leave the recital hall.
