Lecture on Iran’s threat to peace set for July 6

The Tampa JCCs and Federation Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) will present a topical lecture, “Iran: A Threat to Peace and Human Rights,” with Bob Feferman from the United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) on Friday, July 6 at 11:30 a.m. at the Bryan Glazer Family JCC.

Feferman is the outreach coordinator for United Against Nuclear Iran. In 2009, Feferman helped to initiate legislation in the Indiana General Assembly that required Indiana’s state pension funds to divest from holdings in companies working in Iran’s energy sector. In 2011, he helped to support the efforts of the Indianapolis JCRC in passing Iran Contracting Legislation that was signed into law in 2012. Prior to working for UANI, Feferman taught history and language arts in a Montessori school in Indiana.

According to UANI’s website, “the prospect of a nuclear-armed Iran is a danger to world peace,” and therefore since 2008 the not-for-profit, bi-partisan advocacy group has set as its mission to “prevent Iran from fulfilling its ambition to obtain nuclear weapons.” Ambassador Mark D. Wallace, the late Ambassador Richard Holbrooke, and Middle East expert Dennis Ross, among others, founded the organization, and UANI “works to ensure the economic and diplomatic isolation of the Iranian regime in order to compel Iran to abandon its illegal nuclear weapons program, support for terrorism and human rights violations.”

The group, which is currently chaired by former Sen. Joe Lieberman (CT-I), was in favor of President Donald Trump’s decision to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal.

The Glazer JCC is at 522 N. Howard Ave. in Tampa and reservations are requested for catering purposes. Lunch will be available for a charge of $7 per person. For more information on this program or to RSVP, contact Michelle Gallagher at michelle.gallagher@jewishtampa.com or call (813) 739-1687.
