    The ICC@JCC and the Z3 Project invite you to an evening with geopolitical Middle East expert Avi Melamed.

    The current war between Israel and Hamas is a defining moment in the Middle East. As the world grapples with the escalating conflict, understanding the core issues becomes increasingly vital. Are we fully aware of what fuels this war? What led us to this critical juncture? Are we heading towards an expanding multi-front regional war? What does "the day after" look like? What implications does it hold for the region? What are the lessons for the West?

    In this unique apolitical briefing, we will unravel the complexities of this crucial chapter with clear, in-depth, contextualized and holistic analysis. This distinct briefing provides a nuanced contextualization of this moment in the histories of Israel, Palestinians and the Middle East, equips us with a deeper understanding of what lies ahead and empowers us to navigate the far-reaching implications for the future of the Middle East and the global community.
