Why can’t Israel get a fair shake in the Media?

Herb Keinon

Herb Keinon

Herb Keinon, the diplomatic correspondent for The Jerusalem Post, will answer that question when he speaks at the University of Hartford on Wednesday, Oct. 16 at 7 p.m.

Keinon, who moved to Israel from Denver some 30 years ago, has been at the Post since 1985, during which time he has covered a wide range of beats. He took over the diplomatic beat in August 2000 – just after the failed Camp David summit, and just before the outbreak of the Palestinian violence in September of that same year.  In his present role, Keinon covers the prime minister and the foreign minister, often traveling with Netanyahu on his trips abroad.

Keinon holds a BA in political science from the University of Colorado, Boulder, and an MA in journalism from the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana. He is the author of the book Lone Soldiers: Israel’s Defenders from Around the World.

Keinon lives in Ma’ale Adumim.

The Oct. 16 event is co-sponsored by the Jewish Community Relations Council, the Jewish Federation Association of Connecticut, and the University of Hartford’s School of Communication and Maurice Greenberg Center for Judaic Studies.

Herb Keinon’s talk is free and open to the public, but reservation are required by Oct. 14. For reservations call (860) 768-4964 or email mgcjs@hartford.edu.
