Pulitzer Prize winning author Geraldine Brooks will be joining the New Israel Fund for a special book reading and discussion. Avner Gvaryahu of Israeli NGO Breaking the Silence and Rabbi Eric Gurvis of Temple Shalom will join Geraldine for an important conversation about the 50th anniversary of Israel’s occupation of the West Bank.

In “Kingdom of Olives and Ash,” Michael Chabon and Ayelet Waldman, two of today’s most renowned novelists and essayists, have teamed up with the Israeli NGO Breaking the Silence—an organization comprised of former Israeli soldiers who served in the occupied territories and saw firsthand the injustice there—and a host of illustrious writers to tell the stories of the people on the ground in the contested territories.

This event is part of New Israel Fund’s campaign 50 Years of Occupation: Time to Take a Stand.
