The Israel Involvement Committee at Temple Sharey Tefilo-Israel (TSTI) in South Orange and the Community Relations Committee of the Jewish Federation of Greater Metrowest NJ will co-host a talk by Seth M. Siegel, a writer, activist and entrepreneur, on Monday, November 7 at 7:00 p.m. Siegel will discuss the transformative agricultural and irrigation techniques developed and deployed by Israel, as described in his New York Times best-selling book, “Let There Be Water: Israel’s Solution for a Water-Starved World” (St. Martin’s Press, 2015). He will share how Israel, which is largely desert, solved its water problems and created significant economic opportunity in the process.

Siegel’s essays on water and other policy issues have appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, the Los Angeles Times, and in leading publications in Europe and Asia. He is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, the co-founder of several companies, a senior advisor to Start-Up Nation Central, an Israeli non-profit, and the Daniel M. Soref Senior Water Policy Fellow at the School of Freshwater Sciences at the University of Wisonsin-Milwaukee.
