Discussion continues at this hour at the Grand Hyatt hotel in downtown Washington, D.C. Today's opening session of the J Street conference was a strong start to what is sure to be a dynamic few days. My full post will appear in a few days, but highlights from tonight include:
1) Speeches from J Street director Jeremy Ben-Ami and New Israel Fund Leader Daniel Sokatch.
2) Discussion groups with twitter being used to post responses to discussion questions.
3) Video about Israel featuring a side view of Yours Truly in the background.
3) Seeing former Defense Minister Amir Peretz, whose mustache identifies him from a mile away.
I may attend the event tomorrow night as well, but updates and analysis will follow in the next few days.
