This Sunday @ CNS! "Israel Through the Eyes of a Bedouin Muslim Israeli"

A Shepherd's Journey
Israel Through the Eyes of a Bedouin Muslim Israeli: A talk and book signing with Ishmael Khaldi
Introduced by Rabbi Avi Novis-Deutsch, Bay Area Masorti Visiting Scholar

1316 University Ave, Berkeley

Cosponsored by Congregation Beth Israel, Oakland Hebrew Day School, Hadassah, Tehiyah Day School, and Bay Area Masorti

Ishmael Khaldi, vice consul in San Francisco from 2006-2009, grew up one of eleven siblings in a tent in the Galilee. He went from tending goats to becoming Israel's first Bedouin diplomat and is presently Arab affairs advisor to the Foreign Minister. He has chronicled his unusual life in a highly-acclaimed memoir, "A Shepherd's Journey." A sought-after speaker both in Israel and the U.S., as a Bedouin, a Muslim and a proud Israeli, he brings a unique perspective to the discussion of Israel. See for more info.
