Life on the Ground in the Holy Land
On June 9th we heard from two people in dialogue with each other. They bring different perspectives and experiences. Yossi Klein Halevi, Senior Fellow at the Shalom Hartman Institute in Jerusalem and author of Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor (strongly recommended reading for the series) and one of his correspondents in the most recent edition, Mohammed S. Dajani Daoudi, who is the former Weston Fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy and is Director of the Wasatia Academic Institute in Jerusalem. We will also provide registrants with some reading suggested by Professor Dajani Daoudi.
On June 16th we heard from Stephanie Saldaña, a writer, teacher and journalist who specializes in religious diversity in the Middle East, with a focus on refugees. She lives in Bethlehem and is author of a stunning memoir of her time in Jerusalem, A Country Between: Making a Home where Both Sides of Jerusalem Collide.
