Friends Meeting House
1802 E 1st St, Duluth

Dr Smadar Lavie is an Israeli author and anthropologist currently teaching at Macalester College. An outspoken feminist and anti-racist activist, Dr Lavie has faced repression in Israel as a result of her support for the rights of Arabs and Mizrahi (non-European) Jews. She advocates a peaceful, one-state solution to the conflict in Israel/Palestine. Please join us for what promises to be an eye-opening presentation.

You can read an essay written by Dr Lavie about the siege of Gaza and the politics of racism in Israel on the Electronic Intifada website.
