Looking Toward the Future
ADL's Southern Division Director of Policy, Aaron Ahlquist, will guide a candid discussion between Israeli and Palestinian Parents Circle participants Rami Elhanan and Laila Alsheikh, followed by a journalistic perspective from Herb Keinon of The Jerusalem Post.

Herb Keinon, the diplomatic correspondent for The Jerusalem Post, has been at the paper for the last 32 years.

He took over the diplomatic beat in August 2000, just after the failed Camp David summit, and just before the outbreak of the Palestinian violence in September of that year.

Keinon is responsible for covering the prime minister and the foreign minister, often traveling with the Prime Minister on his trips abroad.

He has followed Ehud Barak to Paris, Ariel Sharon to Crawford, Texas, Ehud Olmert to Annapolis, and Binyamin Netanyahu to Beijing, Entebbe and Mumbai. As such, Keinon has up-close knowledge and an intimate perspective of the country’s political, diplomatic and strategic challenges – from Hamas to Hizbullah, Lapid to Likud.

In addition to these duties, which entails writing both news stories, features and analyses, Keinon also writes a popular monthly “light” column on life in Israel. A collection of these columns, French Fries in Pita, was published in October, 2014.

During his years at the Post, Keinon has covered a wide variety of different beats, including Jerusalem, immigration and absorption, religious parties, the ultra-Orthodox, and the settlements. He has also been a features writer at the paper.

In addition, Keinon has lectured widely in Israel, the US, Europe and Australia on the political and diplomatic situation in Israel, and appears on a variety of radio and television programs around the world as a guest commentator on the subject.
