The Association of Churchill Fellows hosts annually a “Churchill Fellows Weekend,” an occasion that brings together renown speakers, statesmen, and Churchillians at the National Churchill Museum at Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri.
His Excellency Ron Dermer, the Israeli Ambassador to the United States, will be the keynote speaker for Churchill Fellows Weekend 2018, to be held March 24-25.

Ambassador Dermer will deliver the Enid and R. Crosby Kemper Lecture on the topic of “Churchill and Israel” in the Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Aldermanbury on Sunday, March 25 at 1:30 PM.
In 2005, Ambassador Dermer gave up his American citizenship in order to assume the economic envoy position at the Israeli embassy in Washington, D.C. Ambassador Dermer became an advisor to Benjamin Netanyahu, who was elected prime minister in 2009, and today he is considered Netanyahu’s closest advisor and political consultant.
