One Land Two Stories with Professors Shaul Gabbay and Amin Kazak
Start Date: 12/2/2012Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Date: 12/2/2012End Time: 9:00 PM
Event Description:
Please join Menorah at the Boulder JCC, Bonai Shalom's Social Action Committee, Congregation Har HaShem, the Jewish Student Association and the Program in Jewish Studies for an author talk with Professors Amin Kazak and Shaul Gabbay.

The land in the title is Israel. The stories, sometimes referred to as the Palestinian and Israeli narratives, are told by Amin Kazak and Shaul Gabbay, respectively. Born in the Holy Land on opposite sides of the Israeli-Palestinian divide, both men's lives have been directly, tragically, impacted by the on-going conflict in a region desperately needing peaceful resolution. Believing that greater understanding among their peoples is a step toward peace, they decided to write a book delineating their opposing realities that includes their personal stories.

Shaul Gabbay was born and raised in Tel Aviv. The son of Jewish Arab refugees, his coming of age in Israel filled him with a sense of belonging and pride. Educated in Israel, Gabbay's Ph.D. is from Columbia University, followed by postdoctoral studies at the University of Chicago.

Amin Kazak was born in Haifa and became a Palestinian refugee in 1948. He spent his formative years impoverished in a Palestinian refugee camp. Kazak completed advanced degrees from the American University in Beirut, Lebanon. He earned a Ph.D. from the University of Denver.
