The Jewish Book Award-winning author of Like Dreamers offers a powerful and nuanced call for reconciliation between Israelis and Palestinians in Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor. In ten provocative and moving letters, Halevi—who was born in the U.S. and emigrated to Israel in his twenties —shares his passion for his adopted homeland and why he refuses to despair of peace between Israelis and Palestinians. Through his unique prism, Halevi reveals the complex strands of faith, pride, anger, and anguish he feels as a Jew living in Israel.
Halevi is a senior fellow of the Shalom Hartman Institute in Jerusalem, where he co-directs, together with Imam Abdullah Antepli of Duke University, the Muslim Leadership Initiative.
