Where: Discovery Building, Room 250 ASU Tempe Campus
When: 7 pm
Join SJP for a lecture panel by Amer Shurrab and Rabbi Lynn Gottlieb.Amer Shurrab is a Palestinian from Khan Yunis and a graduate of Vermont’s Middlebury College. His father and two brothers were fleeing their village when their vehicle came under Israeli fire. Twenty-eight-year-old Kassab died in a hail of bullets trying to flee the vehicle. Eighteen-year-old Ibrahim survived the initial attack, but Israeli troops refused to allow an ambulance to reach them until twenty hours later. By then, it was too late. Ibrahim had bled to death in front of his father.
Amer joins us to tell his story.In light of the terrible destruction of Gaza, what does it look like to resist the assault on the Palestinian way of life and, at the same time, build a vision of a world we want to live in together? Rabbi Lynn Gottlieb will share slides and stories from the West Bank, and address Jewish solidarity in the movement to hold Israel accountable for Occupation. Lynn Gottlieb is co-founder of the Muslim Jewish Peacewalk, and on the Advisory Board of Jewish Voice for Peace and a Freeman Fellow of the Fellowship of Reconciliation.
