Zoom Book Group: The Lemon Tree
October 11, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Does the Holy Land conflict leave you concerned and confused? Not sure of the issues facing people currently living in the area that Christians, Jews, and Muslims all consider holy? Join Good Shepherd, Federal Way for a powerful and empathetic look into the millennia-old struggle of two peoples, Palestinians and Israelis, as they struggle to live on contested ground.
Meet Bashir Khairi and Dalia Eshkenazi Landau on the stoop of a house with a beloved lemon tree in the yard. They develop a rare friendship, forged in the aftermath of war and tested over the next half-century in ways none of us could imagine. Through their instructive and heartbreaking relationship, we will be allowed to expand our understanding of the issues surrounding the Holy Land conflict. We’ll have food for thought long after the book has ended.
“The Lemon Tree: An Arab, A Jew and the Heart of the Middle East” by Sandy Tolanis is available for online purchase or from your local library. Led by Mary Aronen and Jim Donahe. RSVP by October 2 to receive the reading schedule in time to prepare for our first discussion.
