Israeli Ambassador to the United States Michael Oren spoke in Cohen Auditorium yesterday about the U.S.-Israel relationship.

Oren chose specifically to come speak at Tufts and a small number of other Boston−area universities, according to Andrew Cohen, the program associate for Taglit−Birthright Engagement at Tufts Hillel.

“This was an amazing opportunity to really have your voice heard,” Cohen said. “The ambassador stood up and said ‘Please ask me trying questions.’ Very rarely does someone of his position just take open questions from the floor. He did that for almost longer than he actually gave a speech. I think that shows that he was really open for dialogue and really wanted to have a conversation about what’s going on.”

“It’s a true honor that he chose Tufts, and I think that shows the caliber of students that go to Tufts,” Cohen added.
