Please join us for a conversation with Yossi Klein Halevi, New York Times bestselling author of Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor, and Mohammad Darawshe, a leading political analyst who has spent more than three decades advocating for Israel’s Arab sector. They will discuss their evolving views on Israeli-Arab relations and, more generally, how we can engage meaningfully with one another across deeply-held divisions.

 

Speakers

 

Yossi Klein Halevi is a senior fellow at the Shalom Hartman Institute in Jerusalem. Together with Imam Abdullah Antepli of Duke University, he co-directs the Institute’s Muslim Leadership Initiative (MLI), which teaches emerging young Muslim American leaders about Judaism, Jewish identity and Israel. He is the author of Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor (2018), his attempt to untangle the painful lived experiences and histories that define the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Born in Brooklyn, he moved to Israel in 1982, and lives in Jerusalem with wife, Sarah. They have three children.
