In her memoir, Golda Meir said that “Israel’s enemies must know that the  surprise we know as the Yom Kippur War will never, ever recur.”  For  fifty years she was right.  But recent event demonstrate that those who  fail to learn the mistakes of history will indeed be condemned to repeat  them.  

Uri Kaufman, author of Eighteen Days in October: the Yom  Kippur War and How it Created the Modern Middle East, will explain how  Israel was caught by surprise on October 7, and how, as in 1973, it will  recover and ultimately win.

About the speaker: 

After  putting himself through CUNY’s Queens College at night, Uri Kaufman  attended New York University School of Law and graduated with honors in  1989.  Kaufman subsequently became a real estate developer, specializing  in adaptively restoring historic buildings, winning awards at the  national and state level.  His Harmony Mills project appears on the  homepage of the New York State Historic Preservation Office’s website,  hailed by officials as perhaps the finest example of restoring New  York’s rich architectural heritage.    For over twenty years,  Kaufman visited the battlefields, interviewed veterans, and reviewed  thousands of pages of declassified records.  Kaufman is fluent in Hebrew  and hired a team of researchers to translate Russian, Arabic and German  records (to review Stasi files describing Syria).  Eighteen Days in  October is the first history of the Yom Kippur War to be released in  almost twenty years, and the first with access to previously classified  information.
