Men's Club/Sisterhood Breakfast with Professor Stephen Berk

One Hundred Years of Terror and Triumph

Apr 14 2019, 9:30AM to 11:00AM in the Michael & Mary Ellen Herman Banquet Hall.
NOTE: This event has already occurred.

Breakfast at 9:30 am / Lecture at 10:30 am

Prof. Stephen Berk closes his scholar series at Beth Tzedec with an engaging discussion. 

The last century saw the development of institutions intended to end international conflict and lend stability to democratic nations. But these were and are under attack. Consider the founding and failure of the League of Nations, the Treaty of Versailles, the Faisal-Weitzman Agreement, Oslo Accords, the European Union and Brexit, Putin's plans and populist attacks on a democratic and liberal world order. 

Why is the world legal order in crisis? How is this affecting the United States, Canada, and Israel?


A complementary breakfast with Prof. Berk is offered to members of Men's Club and Sisterhood, beginning at 9:30 a.m. Those who are not members of Men's Club or Sisterhood can register for the breakfast—cost $12. Limited seating; pre-registration required by April 8.
