Refusing to be Enemies

Thursday, June 24, 2021 14 Tammuz 5781

6:00 PM - 7:00 PMOnline

Sarah Tuttle-Singer, an Israeli Jew, and Aziz Abu Sarah, a Palestinian, discuss peace and coexistence with Rabbi Debra Landsberg. Bring dinner, your questions, and an open mind. Ages 18-36.

Our social media has been bombarded with extremist messages pitting factions against each other in stark, absolute terms. Fear and anger make it very difficult to find common ground. But Israeli Jew, Sarah Tuttle-Singer, and Palestinian, Aziz Abu Sarah, have managed to do just that. They will share their experiences and insights with our young adult congregants and their friends (ages 18-36) on Thursday evening.

Sarah Tuttle-Singer is the author of Jerusalem Drawn and Quartered and she is the New Media Editor at Times of Israel. She was raised in Venice Beach, California on Yiddish lullabies and civil rights anthems. She now lives in Israel with her two kids where she climbs roofs, explores cisterns, opens secret doors, talks to strangers, and writes stories about people.

Aziz Abu Sarah is a Palestinian peace activist, journalist, social entrepreneur and politician. After watching his brother die of internal injuries subsequent to being released from an Israeli jail following a year-long detention for stone-throwing, Abu Sarah first turned to anti-Israel political writing. After high school, he learned Hebrew and joined an Israeli-Palestinian families bereavement organization, and began lecturing against violent activism in schools.
