About the Speaker
A veteran of the Israeli Defense Force (IDF), Uri Goldflam is the Scholar-in-Residence at Travel Trailer Israel and an expert on the geography, history, and the ancient religions that transect the Holy Land in the nation of Israel.
Born in Jerusalem, Goldflam was raised in South Africa, the United States, and Israel. He earned his undergraduate degree in International Relations and Judaic Studies, as well as a master’s degree in Foreign Policy and Diplomacy, from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.
Equally engaging and enlightening, Goldflam brings a professor’s knowledge to his presentations as he addresses and explains the armed conflicts that currently dominate the Holy Land, international news, and the religions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Uri put his career in educational tourism on hold as he was appointed the Director of Development for Tsofen, a Jewish-Arab organization promoting the employment of Arab engineers in Israel’s high-tech industry.
Serving as a combat platoon sergeant in a paratrooper unit, Goldflam remained in the IDF’s Paratrooper Reserves for over 20 years, and also served as an elected member of the Tzur Hadassah town council where he resides with this family in the mountains outside of Jerusalem.
