    About the Topic:
    Israel is a complicated country; Jerusalem, its capital, is not only complex, it is also diverse.  Along with its communities of secular, modern  Orthodox and  ultra-religious Jews and an often hostile Arab community –  the city is challenged on many other  levels.

    Nearly 41 years after reunification, Jerusalem remains a city riven with deep economic uncertainty.  The poverty rate is higher than for almost any other part of Israel: The Jerusalem Institute for Israeli Studies has found that 23.5% of Jews and 72.5% of non-Jews live in poverty in Jerusalem proper.

    Among the most decisive factors contributing to poverty in Jerusalem is the migration of the two highest wage earning groups – secular Jews and modern orthodox Jews – from the city to surrounding areas.

    Both of the presenting speakers are passionate advocates for Jerusalem as a high tech center and as a source of continuing development.  They will discuss the ways in which the city can be saved from becoming either an economic backwater or else a political football between competing political, ideological and religious interests.

    About the Book:

    For years, we have been warned about the looming danger of overpopulation: people jostling for space on a planet that’s busting at the seams and running out of oil and food and land and everything else.
    But the “population bomb” never exploded. Instead, statistics from around the world make clear that since the 1970s, we’ve been facing exactly the opposite problem: people are having too few babies. Population growth has been slowing for two generations. The world’s population will peak, and then begin shrinking, within the next fifty years. In some countries, it’s already started. Japan, for instance, will be half its current size by the end of the century. In Italy, there are already more deaths than births every year. China’s One-Child Policy has left that country without enough women to marry its men, not enough young people to support the country’s elderly, and an impending population contraction that has the ruling class terrified.
    And all of this is coming to America. Middle-class Americans have their own, informal one-child policy these days. And an alarming number of upscale professionals don’t even go that far—they have dogs, not kids. In fact, if it weren’t for the wave of immigration we experienced over the last thirty years, the United States would be on the verge of shrinking, too.
    What this means for the future of the United States and the world is the focus of this important ground breaking work.
