David Gurevich, a visiting scholar in the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations at Harvard University, will offer an introduction to the geopolitics and complexities of Jerusalem today, followed by a Q&A and light refreshments.

Dr. Gurevich is an expert in the Archaeology and History of the Land of Israel. He is the founder of Ambassadors Online, a University of Haifa project that trains Digital Diplomats and Israeli students in skills to participate in international dialogues. He spent the spring of 2014 in Rome as a member of the Israel delegation to a UNESCO Israeli-Palestinian dialogue project.

This program is being presented in memory of Elaine Shapiro, a long time member of Shir Hadash on the six-month anniversary of her passing.
