Germany was one of the main architects of the European Union. How will Britain’s exit from that body impact the vision of a united Europe, and does it presage serious differences in foreign policy in general, and towards Israel
in particular, since other countries do not share Germany’s deep-seated commitment to Israel or Britain’s close ties to the United States? Immediately after Ambassador Ruenger’s talk, we will open the Zionismus exbibit at the College’s Addlestone Library at 11:45am. Ambassador Ruenger will deliver introductory remarks.
