A Day in the Life of Abed Salama: Anatomy of a Jerusalem Tragedy Book Talk

October 26, 2023 @ 7:00 pm

Please note that we will now be in the CBE Sanctuary. 

In A Day in the Life of Abed Salama: Anatomy of a Jerusalem Tragedy, a new book by essayist and journalist Nathan Thrall, the struggle over Israel/Palestine is rendered at the human scale by way of the heart-wrenching story of an accident that killed Abed Salama’s five-year-old son. Situating the personal narrative in the context of structural forces, A Day in the Life of Abed Salama elucidates the daily injustices faced by the roughly 3.2 million Palestinians living under occupation in the West Bank and details the painful realities of life in the region. Join Thrall and Salama in a conversation with Michelle Goldberg at Congregation Beth Elohim. Please register here.
