Killing A King: The Assassination of Yitzhak Rabin and the Remaking of Israel with author Dan Ephron
Monday, April 18 • 7:30 p.m.
The assassination of Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin by Orthodox Jew Yigal Amir twenty years ago remains the single most consequential event in Irael’s recent history. Dan Ephron’s book relates the parallel stories of Rabin and Amir over the two years leading up to the assassination, as one of them plotted political deals he hoped would lead to peace and the other plotted murder. He will help us understand Israel today, from the paralysis in peacemaking to the fraught relationship between Netanyahu and Obama.
Dan Ephron has served as the Jerusalem bureau chief for Newsweek and The Daily Beast. He covered both the rally where Rabin was assassinated and the subsequent murder trial. He now lives in New York City.
