Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor: A Conversation Between Yossi Klein Halevi and Mohammad Darawshe

Wednesday, October 30, 2019 at 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Alice Statler Auditorium
7 East Ave, Ithaca, NY 14850, USA

Join Cornell Hillel for a conversation between Israeli thought leader Yossi Klein Halevi and Mohammad Darawshe, a Palestinian citizen of Israel and civil society leader, as they discuss their stories, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and the possibility of a shared future together.

Doors open at 6pm. Discussion begins at 6:30pm.

Yossi Klein Halevi will discuss his recent book "Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor," a powerful attempt to reach beyond the wall that separates Israelis and Palestinians. In a series of letters, Halevi endeavors to untangle the painful choices confronting Israelis and Palestinians which have defined the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Mohammad Darawshe, will share his narrative and respond to "Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor" from his perspective as a Palestinian citizen of Israel.

This conversation is part of Cornell Hillel's Conflict Conversation Series which promotes dialogue and understanding between Israeli and Palestinian thought leaders.
