Please join us at Beth El as we welcome Brigadier General (Res.) Professor Jacob Nagel, a career security advisor and head of the Technion’s Center for Security Science and Technology (CSST).

General Nagel will speak on Israel’s National Security Challenges and New Defense Technologies.

Contributing to the defense of Israel for more than 40 years, General Nagel served as the head of Israel’s National Security Council (NSC) and as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s National Security Adviser (acting).

General Nagel will discuss how Israel has maintained its strategic balance and future IDF force building directions, especially as these relate to cyber risks.

He will also present future battlefield needs, and the Technion’s vital role in meeting these needs.
