Are you a young adult looking to connect with Israeli and Palestinians working for lasting peace? Join our book club to discuss narratives about Israel, the history of the land, and views on future peace. We'll be reading Yossi Klein Halevi’s Letters to my Palestinian Neighbor, a series of letters about Israel’s history, with personal responses from Halevi's Palestinian neighbors. We hope you'll join one of our groups to read the book over two meetings, and in the third meeting we'll  interact with a guest speaker from the region. We'll also come together for a festive Shabbat dinner.
