Lecture with Dr. Caryn Aviv
"Side by Side: Learning about the Middle East in a New Way"
Hosted at Congregation Bonai Shalom
Friday, May 3 @ 7:00PM
Dinner: $15/adult, $12/child

Usually, people grow up learning only one side of a complex story about the Middle East. For both Americans and Israeli Jews, that often involves learning a grand narrative about Zionism and Jewish successes in 'making the desert bloom.' For Palestinians, that usually involves stories of expulsion, exile, homelessness, and the yearning for a state. Recently, Israeli Jews and Palestinians have grappled with new ways of telling each other's stories, to each other, side by side. This is no easy task, and it challenges learners to expand their awareness, empathy, and ways of understanding and telling history. Join Bonai Shalom and come learn this new way of narrating and learning history with Dr. Caryn Aviv, who uses the method in a CU Jewish Studies course entitled "Cultures of Israel and Palestine."
