Product description

Review

"A clarion call, not to arms but to empathy...a profound and original book, the work of a gifted thinker...[an] urgent and heartfelt message."--Daphne Merkin, Wall Street Journal

"One of the best one-volume introductions to the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians."--Jeffrey Goldberg, The Atlantic

"Refreshingly honest...In explaining Israel to the Palestinians, [Halevi] appeals to a certain ideal, a higher ambition, a sense of wonder and beauty."--The Forward

"Eloquent and important."--Jewish Boston

"Yossi Klein Halevi wants to extend an olive branch to his Palestinian neighbors, and does so, in his incredibly compelling and heartfelt book Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor."--Jerusalem Post

"A powerful, challenging, and deeply moving plea for human understanding across one of the most tragic divides in modern politics."--Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks

"Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor conveys the urgency and poetry of the Israeli story in a way that is accessible to any reader. I hope everyone will read these beautiful letters--Palestinians and Jews and anyone else interested in understanding who the Jews are and why we returned home."--Natan Sharansky, Chairman of the Executive, Jewish Agency for Israel

"A poetic and moving account...heartfelt, empathetic."--Publishers Weekly

"The tantalizing proposition of Halevi's book, never belabored but always peeking from between the lines, is that faith might unite these two warring tribes whereas reason only fanned the flames of discord."--Tablet Magazine

"By providing an honest, soulful and balanced recap of two emotional narratives, Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor has given us a spiritual roadmap, if not to peace, then at least to hope."--Jewish Journal

From the Back Cover

Given our circumstances, “neighbor” may be too casual a word to describe our relationship. We are intruders into each other’s dreams, violators of each other’s sense of home. We are living incarnations of each other’s worst historical nightmares. Neighbors?

Lyrical and evocative, Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor is one Israeli’s powerful attempt to reach beyond the wall that separates Israelis and Palestinians. In a series of letters, Yossi Klein Halevi explains what motivated him to leave his native New York in his twenties and move to Israel to participate in the drama of the renewal of a Jewish homeland and help ensure that it succeeds as a morally responsible, democratic state in the Middle East.

In this taut and provocative book, Halevi endeavors to untangle the ideological and emotional knot that has defined the conflict for nearly a century. Using history and personal experience as his guides, he unravels the complex strands of faith, pride, anger, and anguish he feels as a Jew living in Israel.

Halevi’s letters speak not only to his anonymous Palestinian neighbor but to all concerned global citizens, helping us understand the painful choices confronting Israelis and Palestinians that will ultimately help determine the fate of the region.
