ISRAEL AND AFRICA

Guest Lecturer:

AMBASSADOR ARTHUR LENK

8.00pm Monday 4 February   

 

Ambassador Arthur Lenk recently retired after 23 years as an Israeli diplomat. He served as Israel’s Ambassador to South Africa, Lesotho and Swaziland from 2013-2017 and as Ambassador to Azerbaijan from 2005-2009. He also served as Director of the Department of International Law at Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs from 2010-2013. He generally chose more complicated postings, arguing that simple relations tend to run themselves organically but complex relationships need close professional guidance. Ambassador Lenk was born in the United States in 1964 and emigrated to Israel in 1982 where he served in the Israel Defense Forces as a medic and studied law at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, achieving every Jewish mother’s dream of both a medical and legal background. He is married to Ruth (our new art teacher) and they have three grown daughters. He now lives in Netanya and works promoting unique Israeli innovation across Africa and other developing regions.

Israel and Africa have been neighbors influencing each other since Jacob and his family went there because of drought and famine in the time of Genesis. Since the founding of modern Israel, the relationship has had ups and downs with Israeli training in agriculture and water management impacting lives in many countries. Ambassador Lenk’s unique session will look at both the history and potential and he will address recent developments such as the relations with Chad.

Price includes refreshments.
