Grassroots International and Spontaneous Celebrations invite you to an evening with physician, author, and activist Alice Rothchild, author of “Broken Promises, Broken Dreams: Stories of Jewish and Palestinian Trauma and Resilience”.
“‘Broken Promises, Broken Dreams’ probes beyond the geopolitical realities confronting Israelis and Palestinians. It is a soul searching, painfully honest examination of ordinary people bonded in a tragic embrace. Ultimately this powerful book is about healing festering wounds and narrowing irreconcilable differences. It deserves the widest readership.”
– Bernard Lown, MD, Professor emeritus Harvard School of Public Health, Co-recipient Nobel Peace Prize
Alice Rothchild takes us on an intimate journey through the complicated historical legacy of Israel and Palestine. Through her work with Israeli and Palestinian medical relief agencies, she brings to life the voices of people mutually entwined in conflict and invites us to engage in a different kind of conversation about Israel and Palestine, one rooted in Jewish humanism, grounded in empathy and forgiveness, and coupled with an appreciation of the urgent need for political action.
