Yousef Bashir at the Jewish Book Festival

November 5, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$20

In The Words of My Father, a Pales­tin­ian-Amer­i­can activist recalls his ado­les­cence in Gaza dur­ing the Sec­ond Intifa­da. Still suf­fer­ing the effects of a near cat­a­stroph­ic injury at the hands of an anony­mous IDF sol­dier, it was Israeli doc­tors who saved Yousef and helped him even­tu­al­ly learn to walk again. In the wake of that expe­ri­ence, Yousef was forced to reck­on with the words of his father, whose belief in coex­ist­ing peace­ful­ly with his Israeli neigh­bors was unshake­able, and whose com­mit­ment to peace was absolute. Bashir’s sto­ry, and the ideals of peace and empa­thy it upholds are a sooth­ing balm for these dan­ger­ous and trou­bled times, and a reminder that love and com­pas­sion are a gift — and a choice.
