Connecting with Rabbi Haviva Ner-David, author of “Hope Valley”
Hosted By: Hadassah-Brandeis Institute (HBI)
Rabbi Haviva Ner-David’s “Hope Valley” is the moving story of the friendship of two women, one Jewish-Israeli and one Palestinian-Israeli, living in the Galilee at the start of the Second Intifada in 2000. Ner-David beautifully weaves together the lives and family histories of Tikva and Ruby, who live on opposite sides of the fence separating Moshav Sapir from the Palestinian village of Bir al-Demue, into a thought-provoking conversation not only about Jews’ and Arabs’ co-existence, shared lands and intertwined histories but also about women’s lives, chronic illness, past choices, and hope.
HBI is a network member of the Jewish Book Council.
We encourage you to read in advance and bring your thoughts and questions to discuss with Ner-David and each other.
