About the event

Yossi Klein Halevi, a New York Times bestselling author and a senior fellow at the Shalom Hartman Institute in Jerusalem, will be our guest speaker on Monday, October 18 for the Community Forum Distinguished Speaker Series. Halevi was originally scheduled to be with us in April 2020, and now our neighbors at Main Line Reform Temple have partnered with BMPC to host this rescheduled event while renovations are completed on our church campus.

Halevi will discuss his recent book, Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor, and the project that has grown up around it. A question and answer session follows his presentation.

Together with Imam Abdullah Antepli of Duke University, he co-directs the Institute’s Muslim Leadership Initiative, which teaches emerging young Muslim American leaders about Judaism, Jewish identity and Israel.

Halevi’s 2013 book, Like Dreamers, won the Jewish Book Council’s Everett Book of the Year Award. His latest book, Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor, is a New York Times bestseller. He writes for leading op-ed pages in the United States, including The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, and is a former contributing editor to the New Republic.

As we prepare for Yossi’s time with us, there will be an opportunity to meet with members of BMPC and MLRT to discuss his book Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor. Information about joining that class can be found here.

We will also welcome a series of guests on Sunday mornings this fall to help us explore multiple perspectives and interpretations of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. For that list of classes, click here.

The Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church Community Forum Distinguished Speaker Series began in 1997. The forums are made possible by the Anna and Herbert H. Middleton, Sr. Fund of the Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church Foundation and are offered as a service to the community at large.
