11:00 AM - 12:00 PMLerner Sanctuary

The annual Chaim & Ella Stern  Memorial Lecture was established by the Stern/Steinberg families in 1995 in memory of their father Chaim Stern who passed away in 1994, and subsequently, of their late mother, Ella Stern, z'l.

We are pleased this year to have Dr. Jacques Assour join us as guest lecturer. His talk will explore the ABRAHAM ACCORDS, an agreement signed in September 2020 between Israel and a number of Middle East neighbors and partners.

The presentation and discussion of the Accords will touch on diplomatic ties, trade, investments, cultural programs, and grassroots cooperation between people.

Dr. Jacques Assour was born in Egypt and emigrated to Israel in his teens. He served as an officer in the Israel Defense Forces, including Israel Intelligence. In the U.S., Dr. Assour earned degrees in electrical engineering and a Ph.D. in electro-physics.

He has served in executive positions in several electronics companies. Dr. Assour is a member of Magen David Sephardic Congregation, in Maryland.
