The Other as a Mirror: Windows on Israeli Society Through Literature

November 4, 2015 $36.00 0

Celebrated and impassioned teacher Rachel Korazim brings us insights into the inner Israeli discourse on contemporary issues through a lively conversation about modern Israeli literature. A knowledge of Hebrew is not required for engaging with the poems and prose of some of Israel’s best known writers as they confront the differences between the vision and the realities of life in the country.

Rachel Korazim is an enthusiastically received lecturer at the Shalom Hartman Institute
in Jerusalem. The New Center is proud to present her at two lunchtime events:

Wednesday, November 4 – Hebrew College, Newton Center
The Other as a Mirror combines the literary works of Israeli Jews and Arabs, exploring the images of Arabs in Israeli literature and the depiction of life in Israel by Arab Israeli writers. Poems of Yehuda Amichai and Agi Mishol offer conflicting images of friend and foe. The work of Sami Michael and Emil Habibi present two views of Jews and Arabs living together on the same street in Haifa.

Event Location: Hebrew College
160 Herrick Rd., Newton, Massachusetts, 02459
