About The Event

At the next In His Steps: Pathways of Peace meeting, we will hear two Israeli voices for peace. A video with Israeli Professor and 2001 Sakharov Prize winner Nurit Peled-Elhanan, explains her findings after examining 17 Israeli school textbooks on history, geography and civic studies. Her conclusions find a distinct bias in the Israeli education system that appears to cultivate anti-Arab racism in educational materials.

Following the video, there will be a discussion of The General’s Son, a book written by Professor Peled-Elhanan’s brother, Miko Peled, who explores his transformation from a proudly-serving member of the Israeli army to a fearless advocate of nonviolent efforts toward peace.

Nurit and Miko are children of a prominent Zionist family whose grandfather and father played key roles in the establishment of Israel. Even with the death of Nurit’s daughter at 13 years of age by a Palestinian suicide attack, the family has fought for peace and reconciliation between Israelis and Palestinians.

Please join us for a candid, heart-felt, and enlightened view, as seen by one family in the midst of this long conflict.
