Men’s Discussion Group

Men’s Discussion Group

2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month 
10:00-11:00 a.m.
Education Building, Children’s Library

This fall, the group will read and discuss Yossi Klein Halevi’s book Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor.  Halevi is a senior fellow at the Shalom Hartman Institute in Jerusalem, where he co-directs the Institute’s Muslim Leadership Initiative, which teaches emerging young Muslim American leaders about Judaism, Jewish identity and Israel.

Lyrical and evocative, Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor is an Israeli’s powerful attempt to reach beyond the wall that separates Israelis and Palestinians. In a series of letters, Halevi endeavors to untangle the ideological and emotional knot that has defined the Israeli-Palestinian conflict for nearly a century. Using history and personal experience as his guides, he unravels the complex strands of faith, pride, anger and anguish he feels as a Jew living in Israel. Halevi’s letters speak not only to his Palestinian neighbor, but to all concerned global citizens, helping us understand the painful choices confronting Israelis and Palestinians that will ultimately help determine the fate of the region.

We are making plans for this class to meet in person this fall in our newly renovated Education Building, but we will continue to be cautious in maintaining the health and safety of participants.
