The Letters Project:
Conversing Across Narratives
A 4-session intergenerational community class to explore the dual narratives at the heart of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Class dates: October 22 and 29; November 5 and 12
11:30 AM - 12:35 PM on Zoom.
High school students who register through the Talmud Torah of St. Paul can receive a stipend upon completion of the course and all course requirements.
The Letters Project is an award-winning program created locally. It is based on Yossi Klein Halevi’s book Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor, with an extensive epilogue of Palestinian responses. Sally Abrams and Holly Brod Farber, JCRC co-directors of Judaism and Israel Education and creators of the program, will teach the class.
The class will use the paperback 2nd Edition (2019) of the book. (The 1st Edition does not have response letters.)
To prepare for the first class, read the first three letters of both narratives.
Presented in partnership with the Talmud Torah of Minneapolis and Talmud Torah of St. Paul.
