The 60th season of the Purdue University North Central Sinai Forum will feature internationally known columnist and commentator Charles Krauthammer on Sunday, Oct. 13 at 3 p.m., CT, at Michigan City High School, 8466 W Pahs Road, in Michigan City.

The appearance of Charles Krauthammer is sponsored by The Bankoff Family Fund for Sinai Forum as a gift to the community to celebrate the 60th anniversary of The Forum and the 100th anniversary of Sinai Temple where The Forum originated. For the Krauthammer program only, the public will be welcome, free of charge, after subscribers are seated. The community is invited to a special reception of celebration immediately following the program at Sinai Temple, 2800 Franklin Street, Michigan City. Krauthammer is expected to attend.

The Pulitzer Prize winner will address, “America’s Role in the World: What It Should Be, What It Is,” a look at the rise and fall of great powers and America’s changing role in the world since 1948.

Krauthammer is a syndicated columnist for “The Washington Post,” a contributing editor for “The Weekly Standard” and “The New Republic,” and a regular panelist for shows on PBS and Fox News. In 2006, the “Financial Times” named Krauthammer “the most influential commentator in America.”

Krauthammer earned an honors degree in Political Science and Economics from McGill University and he was a Commonwealth Scholar in politics at Balliol College, Oxford, before entering Harvard Medical School. During his first year of medical school, he was paralyzed in a diving accident and hospitalized for more than a year. He still continued his medical studies and graduated with his class in 1975. He was a chief resident in psychiatry at Massachusetts General Hospital.

Today, his columns, articles and commentary are featured throughout the nation.

The 2013 Forum season is sponsored by The Franciscan Alliance Northern Indiana Hospitals, including Franciscan St. Anthony Health in Michigan City and Crown Point, Franciscan St. Margaret Health in Dyer and Hammond and Franciscan Physicians Hospital in Munster.

Season subscription tickets are $75 for regular tickets and $150 for patron tickets. Any student with a valid ID will be admitted free.
