Pulitzer Prize-winning author Lawrence Wright, whose acclaimed non-fiction works include Going Clear, an expose of Scientology, and The Looming Tower: Al-Qaeda and the Road to 9/11, discusses his latest book, an analysis of the negotiations that led to the landmark 1979 Israeli-Egyptian peace treaty. Thirteen Days in September: Carter, Begin, and Sadat at Camp David traces every step of those dramatic negotiations between Menachem Begin and Anwar Sadat, each party with so much at risk, and President Jimmy Carter's role in guiding them to a successful conclusion.

How do we know what’s valuable? If the most valuable things are priceless, then why do we say “everything has its price?” In a transaction, does the monetary price capture all the worth or is there more left to interpret? And how do we put a value on being Jewish? Distinguished sociologist Robert N. Bellah, best known for his ground breaking Habits of the Heart, Rabbi David Ellenson, President of Hebrew Union College, UpStart’s Toby Rubin and Stanford University’s Ari Kelman join in a provocative conversation about the inherent value of Jewish community beyond the dollar prices of Hebrew Day Schools, synagogues, camps and philanthropy.
