The Bubis Lecture was established by the Americans for Peace Now board of directors upon the retirement from the board of Gerald “Jerry” Bubis (z”l), who was a seminal leader from its founding, including as a national co-chair and other leadership roles in Southern California. The Valley Beth Shalom Congregation, spiritual home to the Bubis family for decades, is a co-sponsor and host of this event.
Lara Friedman, APN Director of Policy and Government Relations, was the guest speaker for this event. She had recently provided the APN testimony at a United Nations Security Council special session on Israeli Settlements.
