Gil Hoffman, chief political correspondent and analyst for the Jerusalem Post, will speak at Northwest Nazarene University at 5 pm on Monday, March 4. Hoffman’s lecture is titled: “Peace, Politics or Plutonium: Will there be war or peace in the Holy Land?”

Called “the most optimistic man in Israel” by Israel Television, Hoffman has interviewed every major figure across the Israeli political spectrum. He has been interviewed by top media on six continents and is a regular analyst on CNN, Al-Jazeera and other major news outlets. Hoffman is a member of the speakers’ bureaus of AIPAC, Hagshama, Hasbara, Israel Bonds, Israel on Campus Coalition, JNF and the Jewish Federations of North America.

Having lectured for synagogues, churches, universities and organizations in Israel, the US, Canada, England, South Africa, Australia and France, Hoffman is excited to add the state of Idaho to his speaking repertoire.

Raised in Chicago, Hoffman graduated magna cum laude from Northwestern University’s School of Journalism. He wrote for the Miami Herald and Arizona Republic before moving to Israel where he now lives with his wife and two children.

This event is free and open to the public. The lecture will begin at 5 p.m. in the Harter Lecture Hall, Helstrom Business Building, 804 E Dewey St., Nampa, Idaho. Hors d’oeuvres and seating will begin at 4:30.

This student-organized event is sponsored by the newly created NNU Senior Academic Society, a group that focuses on providing academic conversations to the University and the community outside the classroom. For more information or to inquire about available seating for high school students, please contact SAS President, Emma Roemhildt at ERoemhildt@nnu.edu.
