Free and open to the public.

Join world-renowned Israel and Holocaust educator Dr. Rachel Korazim in exploring the Arab-Israeli relationship through literature. This lecture combines Israeli literary works of both Jews and Arabs. We shall explore images of Arabs in Jewish-Israeli literature, then juxtapose them with Arab-Israeli literary works depicting a society in which they often feel disenfranchised. Poems of Yehuda Amichai and Agi Mishol will offer conflicting images of friend and foe, and Sami Michael and Emil Habibi will present complimentary views of the life of Jews and Arabs living together in the same street in Haifa that they both love.
