CBH is proud and excited to announce our first in a series of educational programs on issues related to Israel and the struggle between Israelis and Palestinians.

Tuesday evening December 8th, 7pm, at CBH Lavista

7:15 - Dr. Shlay’s presentation
8:15 - Facilitated Q & A with Dr. Shlay.

About the program:
Jews call it Jerusalem. Arabs call it Al Quds.
By one expert’s tally, the so-called City of Peace, has been “destroyed at least twice, besieged 23 times, attacked an additional 52 times, and captured and recaptured 44 times." Today, three faiths consider it holy. Two peoples claim it as their national capital. Through it all, Jerusalem remains home to more than 700,000 people who work, raise families and live their lives.

Anne’s book, Jerusalem: The Spatial Politics of a Divided Metropolis chronicles “(the) competing on-the-ground interests: the endless set of claims, struggles, and debates over the land, neighborhoods, and communities that make up Jerusalem. These are the windows to the world of the Israel-Palestine conflict.” Join Dr. Anne Shlay for an in-depth look at this divided city and her search for answers about, “Whose Jerusalem?”

A Note about our educational series: Our Task Force is composed of CBH members with varied political perspectives, holding differing ideas on a variety of topics relevant to Israel and Israel-Palestine. We are planning a yearlong series of educational programming from “all sides”. Some events may make you happy while others may make you angry. All will inform. Over the course of our series, our aim is to provide balance and engagement.

Please join us as we begin this journey - to learn together, to grapple with differing viewpoints, and to gain insight into our own and others’ positions.
