May 2022

Reflections on Jerusalem A Century of Lost Opportunities: Join me in a personal exploration of the ancient city of Jerusalem, with a special focus on East Jerusalem and the surrounding areas of Greater Jerusalem, which have experienced decades of “Judaization” and erasure of the Palestinian presence. What are the costs of these policies, not only to Palestinians, but also to Jewish Israelis who are claiming the city as their own? How is this a mirror of the ongoing occupation of Palestine? What can we learn and what can we do?
Please note: Unfortunately, due to an error in the Zoom setting when my presentation was being recorded, the talk was taped in Zoom “gallery” view rather than “speaker” view.
