The Pen and the Sword: Covering the Arab World from Israel

Thursday, May 17 | 7:00-8:30PM | BJ Community House
Join us for part two of a two-part series on Israelis in the media. Each event will feature a journalist who specializes in Middle Eastern studies, covers Middle Eastern news, and appears regularly in the Arab press.
Dr. Mordechai Kedar and Elhanan Miller each represent conflicting views on Middle Eastern affairs and the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. We highly recommend you attend both presentations in order to get a broader sense of these issues.

Part two will feature Elhanan Miller, a former Arab affairs reporter for The Times of Israel. He will share his personal experiences as a religious, Ashkenazi Jew from Jerusalem working in the Arab press, as well as discuss the challenges Israeli journalists reporting on the Middle East face. Additionally, he will present “People of the Book”, his animated YouTube series that strives to bridge the cultural and religious divide between Jews and Muslims through basic education.
