On the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Israeli occupation of the
West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem, Grassroots International and Spontaneous
Celebrations invite you to an evening with physician, author, and activist
Alice Rothchild, author of
Broken Promises, Broken Dreams
Stories of Jewish and Palestinian
Trauma and Resilience
"Broken Promises, Broken Dreams" probes beyond the geopolitical realities
confronting Israelis and Palestinians. It is a soul searching, painfully
honest examination of ordinary people bonded in a tragic embrace. Ultimately
this powerful book is about healing festering wounds and narrowing
irreconcilable differences. It deserves the widest readership."
- Bernard Lown, MD, Professor emeritus Harvard School of Public Health,
Co-recipient Nobel Peace Prize
Alice Rothchild takes us on an intimate journey through the complicated
historical legacy of Israel and Palestine. Through her work with Israeli and
Palestinian medical relief agencies, she brings to life the voices of people
mutually entwined in conflict and invites us to engage in a different kind
of conversation about Israel and Palestine, one rooted in Jewish humanism,
grounded in empathy and forgiveness, and coupled with an appreciation of the
urgent need for political action.

45 Danforth St., Jamaica Plain
