Celebrate Israeli @ 75 with Moment Magazine

Happy 75th Anniversary!
Israel Through the Eyes of Its Poets and Novelists
Israel at 75 offers a far richer culture than a visitor can grasp from just following its politics or visiting its tourist sites. One powerful way to plunge deeper is to read Israeli literature. Like the Talmud, though, it’s a vast sea. Where should you start?
In this five-session book series, co-sponsored by The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington and Moment Magazine, we’ll at least begin to scratch the surface. This series explores today’s Israel through the eyes of recent writers in a kaleidoscope of genres: novel, memoir, short stories, poems. For each work, we’ll offer a special guest: the author, the translator or a scholar who will guide readers through the text as well as field readers’ questions.
Moment book review editor Amy E. Schwartz will lead these conversations.
Elijah says: “This Passover, give the gift of Jewish politics, culture and religion.”
