April 17, 2012 - PRLog -- CHICAGO -   The world is at a crucial crossroads and the Middle East – and Israel in particular – is at its junction.   The Bar-Ilan School of Communication of Israel is organizing a week of events in Chicago and the suburbs beginning Tuesday, May 1 and continuing through Sunday May 6.

Just a few days before the NATO summit will take place in Chicago, participants will have the opportunity to listen to academic experts and ask them the questions they need answered.   Bar-Ilan is reaching out to Jews and Christians; men and women; and people of different nationalities, who will be impacted by current events and where they may lead.   The six-day event features presentations, lectures and panel discussions.   A complete schedule of dates, speakers, topics and locations for Today’s Middle East: Challenges, Leadership, Communications is listed below.   Advance reservations are required for some events and the public is encouraged to contact individual venues to reserve a seat.   Information about the Bar-Ilan School of Communications is available on the website at www.BIU-SC.com and the calendar of all events can be found on http://www.biu-sc.com/Calendar.php
