Susan Nathan to discuss "My Journey Across the Jewish-Arab Divide"
Followed by Q & A and an interfaith panel discussion
Sunday, October 5, 7:00 pm
Old Brick Auditorium - 26 E. Market St., Iowa City
Popular Israeli author, Susan Nathan, was born in England and as a child was deeply affected by visits to her father's native country of South Africa. Nathan moved to Israel as an adult following the Jewish Law of Return. Her book, The Other Side of Israel, has been hailed as a roadmap for crossing a divide created by prejudices and misunderstandings.
"My belief that being Jewish entails certain responsibilities arose from [my] childhood," she writes. "It is precisely because of my personal history that I find myself in conflict with my Jewish/Israeli identity and the politics of my country's government."
After Ms. Nathan speaks, members of an interfaith panel (Jewish, Muslim, Christian) will respond and join Ms. Nathan for a question and answer session.
Ms Nathan's lecture is sponsored by PEACE Iowa, Consultation of Religious Communities, and Soul Friends
Free will donations will be accepted at the door.
