“Elon’s lectures never end on their allotted time and the audience often asks him to continue for more. Would that there were more Elon Perrys in this world...”

Carrol Nathanson, London


“Elon is a very intelligent lecturer with an amazing memory who can cover 100 years of historical facts and events. He challenges the audience to ask any question on the subjectb during his talk and not only in the Q&A session, and then he answers them eloquently. His lectures are attracting so many people that we have had to get in more chairs.”

Professor A.Klieman, Oxford


“Amazing! Both an erudite and charismatic speaker, the audience hanging on to every word. The animated question time following the talk showed the keenness of the audience to ask many searching questions, testament to his qualities as a talented speaker.”

Why Women Choose The Wrong Men

A combined lecture and workshop to make you aware of the real reasons women choose the wrong men and find themselves in unhappy relationships.

There are several reasons for this, depending on individual personalities and circumstances, but the most common reason is that a woman falls for the height of a man on first sight, rather than focusing on his important qualities, which are essential for a long relationship. In this workshop, you will understand the reasons why women are instinctively attracted to tall men only, and learn how to overcome this inbuilt primitive instinct.

This fascinating workshop has helped hundreds of women to enhance their awareness of the real factors that draw them to the wrong men.

Jerusalem Burning

A talk about the Israeli/Arab conflict and the history of Israel from its establishment until today

Did the Arabs initially agree to allow Jews to settle in Israel, and did they live in peace with Jews in Palestine? The answer is yes, so what frightened the Arabs and caused them to declare a war that is still continuing? The answer is Zionism. What was it about Zionism that frightened the Arabs and caused them to resist? Why has the world's media been so hostile towards Israel?

Elon Perry is an Israeli journalist who served as a soldier in the elite Golani unit of the Israeli army during the Intifada (uprising) in the West Bank, and during the Lebanon War, where explosives damaged his respiratory system. Elon has a degree in Political Science from Tel Aviv University, and has lectured at many institutions. He is very familiar with the Israeli/Arab conflict and the history of Israel from its establishment until today, and has lectured at many institutions about the Palestinian Israeli conflict. Elon is a former soldier and a journalist who can tell unforgettable stories from the battlefield!

The Birth of the Italian Mafia

In this engaging and popular lecture, I describe the triangular thread from the origins of the Mafia in Italy, the first Mafia criminal acts, and the rise and establishment of its branches in New York and Chicago.


I describe the bloody war between the mob leaders in Italy, New York and Chicago, including the legendary Al Capone.


I identify the real ‘Godfather’ and the story of his life. The involvement of the Mafia in American politics, such as the assassination of President Kennedy, and with the rich and famous, such as Frank Sinatra and others.
