Join us for the book launch of “Essential Israel: Essays for the 21st Century,” the Schusterman Center’s newest publication, co-edited by Schusterman Center associate director Rachel Fish and founding director Ilan Troen.
The volume’s diverse essays provide a compelling and nuanced view of complexity essential for a grounded understanding of Israel and the public debate that surrounds it today.
“Contemporary Israel commands considerable public attention, yet literacy about Israel is surprisingly limited. This collection of original essays probes “Israel literacy” without polemics or advocacy. It raises public understanding by pressing key questions about Israel, its politics, demography, international relations, and culture.”
– Kenneth Waltzer, Professor Emeritus of History and Former Director of Jewish Studies, Michigan State University
