Rabbi Jeffrey Kamins in conversation with Israel's Ambassador, Mark Sofer.

Israel’s international relations in the light of world events:  In the midst of a pandemic, with Iran and its proxies still threatening, Israel’s relationships with its Arab neighbours and beyond (particularly in Asia) continue to improve.  Ambassador Mark Sofer will address these issues and more.

After receiving his BA in Economics and International Relations from the London School of Economics, Mark took an MA in Political Science at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Following his studies, he performed his military service before joining the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

His distinguished career with the Ministry has seen him posted to Peru, Norway, and New York, before being appointed as Ambassador to Ireland, and later as Ambassador to the Republic of India and, concurrently, Non-Resident Ambassador to the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka. His career also spans acting as a Policy Advisor to the then-Foreign Minister of Israel Shimon Peres, and heading a prestigious non-profit foundation, the Jerusalem Foundation.
Before his posting to Australia, Mark served as Deputy Director General of the Foreign Ministry and Head of Asia and Pacific Division.
