Date: 
Sun, 02/18/2018 - 6:00pm

Lian Najami is a young Arab-Israeli woman living in Haifa who talks about "Building a Better Society: A Story of Shared Existence" based on her experiences growing up in a liberal Muslim family, attending a Christian high school, and volunteering in a Jewish community center. Lian lives in a mixed Jewish-Arab area of the city and has volunteered for the past eight years in the Clore Center for Jewish-Arab coexistence which is located in her neighborhood. She speaks Arabic, Hebrew, English, Spanish, and German, is currently a fellow with the Tom Lantos-Humanity in Action Congressional Fellowship, and is the first Arab-Israeli Rhodes scholar. Lian believes that through tolerance and understanding, shared experience is possible. Hosted by Tufts Friends of Israel, co-sponsored by CJP & Israel Campus Roundtable, Tufts Hillel, and Muslim Chaplaincy.
