Shalom Hartman Book Group: Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor 2019

Sundays | 10am | January 27 to April 7

With 10 lyrical and provocative letters, Halevi is the first Israeli author to directly address Palestinians in an attempt to explain how the conflict appears through Israeli eyes. Combining a powerful commitment to Israel’s legitimacy with deep empathy for Palestinian suffering, he reveals the complex strands of faith, pride, anger, and anguish he feels as a Jew living in Israel. The class will focus, each week, on a specific topic based on a letter from the book. 

Reading & discussions led by Rabbi Michael Siegel and the clergy of Anshe Emet.
