The Image of the Other: An evening of learning with Rachel Korazim

October 24, 2022 at 7:30 pm - 9:15 pm

Join us as we explore the images of the Arab in modern Israeli literature. Arabs have been portrayed in Israeli literature from the very early days of the first Aliya. Their image constantly changes from romantic biblical figures to suspicious enemies and all the way to neighbors and critical witnesses of Israel’s ever-changing reality. We will read short excerpts from works by David Grossman, A.B. Yehoshua, Savyon Liebrecht and others.

Rachel Korazim is a freelance Jewish education consultant in curriculum development for Israel and Holocaust education. Rachel opens for her audiences a window to Israeli society through literature; through stories, poems and songs of the best of Israel’s writers, she invites listeners to engage with Israel in an innovative way.  Rachel is by far one of Rabbi Bronstein’s favorite teachers at the Hartman Institute in Jerusalem.  Her talks to our Bet Am Shalom groups traveling in Israel have been wonderful and memorable.

Until 2008, Rachel had been the Academic Director of Distance learning programs at The Jewish Agency for Israel Department of Education.
