Description

Instant Issues Series:

Consul General of Israel in New England Yehuda Yaakov will speak at an Instant Issues Brown Bag Lunch event on US-Israeli relations on Thursday, October 19, 2017 at noon in the Community Room, One Financial Plaza (1350 Main Street), in Springfield.

Yehuda Yaakov has been the Consul General of Israel to New England since February 2014. He has focused largely on strengthening values-driven partnerships between Israel and New England in the areas of business, academia and social justice. He is also involved in regionally-based coexistence projects.

Consul General Yaakov has spent most of his diplomatic career on issues pertinent to Israel’s security. This experience has included heading the Israeli Foreign Ministry’s department for non-conventional weapons prevention (2004-2007), as well as establishing and running the homeland security and counter-terrorism unit (2001-2004). In 2012, he received the Ministry's award for excellence for his work on the Iranian crisis.

He has also served outside Israel in New York and New Zealand.

CG Yaakov’s career has also included academic pursuits. In the spring of 2013 he published a translated version of his Haifa University master’s thesis analyzing the nuclear negotiations strategy of Iran's currant president Hassan Rouhani.
