Garry Powers recently visited Israel and will tell us about Current Political and Economic Conditions in Israel and the West Bank.
In mid-January, Garry and Peggy Powers returned from a National Geographic expedition to Israel and the West Bank. Although they visited sites of historical significance to both the Hebrew and Arab cultures during the last 3,000 years, Garry’s presentation will focus on the current political and economic conditions in Israel and the West Bank.
