St. Louis Jewish Book Festival Presents Elisha Waldman

November 16, 2018 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am


In This Narrow Space, Dr. Elisha Waldman, an American pediatric oncologist working at Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem, describes his struggles as a doctor in the Israeli healthcare system. As he cares for his vulnerable young patients, Waldman explains how navigating the unique political, economic, cultural, linguistic, and religious challenges of the hospital affects how he constructs his identity as a physician, an American, an Israeli, and a Jew.

This Narrow Space is not only Waldman’s personal story, and it is also the story of the hospital, its staff, patients, and their families—and even of Jerusalem, Israel, and the Middle East as a whole. From the opening pages, Waldman shows that his experiences are closely intertwined with those of others. It is to his credit that he gives the hospital, its employees, and those they serve such central roles in the book.
