A Conversation With New York Times Correspondent Isabel Kershner

Hosted By: UJA-Federation of New York, The New York Jewish Week

Event Contact

Please join UJA-Federation of New York and The New York Jewish Week and for a timely conversation that shines a spotlight on Israeli politics, diplomacy, religion — and the people who make their lives in the country.

Isabel Kershner’s new book, The Land of Hope and Fear: Israel’s Battle for Its Inner Soul, probes behind her front-page stories and approaches this critical moment in Israel’s history with deep understanding, curiosity, and empathy. In rich detail, she unfolds the complicated, interconnected stories of Arabs and Jews, religious and secular, urban dwellers and settlers, Ashkenazim and Sephardim, soldiers and veterans, and immigrants from all over the world.

Isabel will be in conversation with award-winning journalist Sandee Brawarsky.
