The Chabad Jewish Center of Jackson Hole is hosting a free online presentation by Israeli rocket scientist, Ari Sacher, at 6 p.m. Thursday.
The presentation, “Inside Israel’s Iron Dome,” will focus on Israel’s missile defense system.
“It’s a wonderful partnership between the U.S. and Israel that allows for there to be less casualties and less destruction, which is a wonderful thing,” said Rabbi Zalman Mendelsohn. “It buys Israel time and patience to be able to find a means of coming together and peace.”
Sacher was instrumental in the creation of the ‘iron dome’ anti missile defense system. Sacher makes rocket science understandable for the layperson and has briefed members of Congress on Israeli missile defense at the invitation of the U.S. House Majority Leader and Israeli ambassador, according to the event's invite.
“Ari was the person behind the science of creating this missile defense system,” Zalman said. ”He’s a fascinating person. So I figured we'd bring him out and hear about the missile defense system and how it saves lives.
“We encourage people to come and listen and learn," he said. "I think it will make for a fascinating evening.”
