About the Event

President Emerita of the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia, Buntzie Ellis Churchill, traveled on the Jewish Institute for National Security of America's 2021 flagship Generals & Admirals Program to Israel. The nine-day trip featured a delegation of former officers from the highest levels of the U.S. military, including the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, commander of CENTCOM and Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency.

The group met with Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, as well as top Israeli Defense Forces officials including Chief of the General Staff, LTG Aviv Kochavi, who discussed current and future threats to Israel. It was the first time the IDF hosted a full-size delegation of former U.S. military officials since the COVID-19 pandemic.

Join the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia for a discussion with President Emerita, Buntzie Ellis Churchill, about her experience on this unique delegation and her insights into the continuing conflict between Israel and Hamas, and what happens next.
