Join us for a special evening of storytelling and conversation with editors and contributors to the recently-published book A Land With A People: Palestinians and Jews Confront Zionism

Come hear how Jewish and Palestinian stories came together in this groundbreaking collection of personal narratives. Listen to their lived experiences and learn how these voices are forging new conversations and relationships.

Storytelling is one way out of the quagmire of argument and acrimony that so often characterizes conversations about Israel/Palestine. The organizers of this event are committed to holding a safe space to listen, reflect and ask questions.
