6125 Montrose Road,
Rockville, Maryland

Featured speakers:

David Bernstein, director of the DC American Jewish Committee, who has often written and spoken on the subject of the media's coverage of events in Israel, will discuss the American Jewish Committee's study of The Washington Post (and other papers).

From the introduction of Dr. Muravchik's book: "[O]bsessive or one-sided criticism of Israeli policies may reflect a deeper animosity to the state."
