LETTERS TO MY PALESTINIAN NEIGHBOR BOOK DISCUSSION WITH YOSSI KLEIN HALEVI
MONDAY, OCTOBER 18 AT 7:00 PM
In-person discussion at MLRT and on Zoom
Yossi Klein Halevi, a New York Times bestselling author and a senior fellow at the Shalom Hartman Institute in Jerusalem, will be our guest speaker on Monday, October 18 in a joint program with Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church. Halevi will discuss his recent book, Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor, and the project that has grown up around it, in person at MLRT and on Zoom.
Together with Imam Abdullah Antepli of Duke University, Halevi co-directs the Institute’s Muslim Leadership Initiative, which teaches emerging young Muslim American leaders about Judaism, Jewish identity and Israel. His first book, Memoirs of a Jewish Extremist, tells the story of his teenage years as a follower of the militant rightwing rabbi Meir Kahane, and his subsequent disillusionment with Jewish radicalism. The New York Times called it “a book of burning importance.” Halevi’s 2013 book, Like Dreamers, won the Jewish Book Council’s Everett Book of the Year Award. His latest book, Letters to My
Palestinian Neighbor, is a New York Times bestseller.
Halevi writes for leading op-ed pages in the United States, including The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, and is a former contributing editor to the New Republic. Born in Brooklyn, he moved to Israel in 1982, and lives in Jerusalem with wife, Sarah, who helps run a center for Jewish meditation.
A question and answer session follows his presentation; all are welcome!
