EJ Dionne, long-time op-ed columnist for The Washington Post, will speak on “Personal Faith and Public Policy” at 5 p.m., Sunday, May 5, at Congregation Beth Israel.
Dionne writes twice each week on national politics and policy. He is a Professor at Georgetown University and a senior fellow at The Brookings Institution. He has been a frequent commentator on politics for National Public Radio, ABC's "This Week" and NBC's "Meet the Press."
The talk is part of a lecture series funded by the Oseran Family Fund, established in 2008 to provide annual lectures with a socially responsible Jewish theme. Past lecturers have included U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Chabon, and author and national correspondent Jeffrey Goldberg.
