GREENWICH, Conn. — Ambassador Dennis Ross will be making a sold-out appearance in Greenwich to speak about the Iran nuclear agreement.
The special event Thursday at 7:30 p.m. is presented by UJA Greenwich, JCC Greenwich and the United Jewish Federation of Greater Stamford, New Canaan and Darien.
Ross will also be presenting his latest book, "Doomed to Succeed: The U.S.-Israel Relationship from Truman to Obama," a history of the sometimes-fraught, occasionally tense but always essential relationship between the U.S. and Israel. Books will be available for purchase at the event.
Ross is counselor and William Davidson Distinguished Fellow at The Washington Institute for Near East Policy.
Before returning to the Institute in 2011, he served two years as special assistant to President Barack Obama and National Security Council senior director for the Central Region and a year as special adviser to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. For more than 12 years, Ross played a leading role in shaping U.S. involvement in the Middle East peace process and dealing directly with the parties in negotiations.
A highly skilled diplomat, Ross was U.S. point man on the peace process in both the George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton administrations. He was instrumental in assisting Israelis and Palestinians in reaching the 1995 Interim Agreement; he also successfully brokered the 1997 Hebron Accord, facilitated the 1994 Israel-Jordan peace treaty and intensively worked to bring Israel and Syria together.
The sold-out event will take place in the auditorium at Carmel Academy, 270 Lake Ave, Greenwich. A wait-list is available, but seats are not guaranteed. Register at http://ujafedgreenwich.org/ or call 203-552-1818.
