Jewish Culture and Society

Please join us for the second 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.


As many of us grapple with local and global conflicts and what the “new normal” can and should be, we are confronted with fundamental questions about shared community and core values. Now on campus following their virtual conversation with Chancellor Jones this past spring, Halevi and Darawshe will delve more deeply into the impact of current conflicts and how we can remain in dialogue with one another through numerous challenges and crises.


Sponsored by the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion and the Program in Jewish Culture & Society.
