Till We Have Built Jerusalem: A Conversation with Adina Hoffman and Rafi Segal
Monday, May 01, 2017
A fascinating exploration of three architects who were instrumental in shaping modern Jerusalem. Author Adina Hoffman (author of Till We Have Built Jerusalem: Architects of a New City; co-author of Sacred Trash, Story of the Cairo Geniza) and Israeli architect Rafi Segal discuss the people behind the buildings and the recurring themes of loss, exile, and belonging that make up the story of the new city of Jerusalem. Join us at 7:00 pm as we mark the start of Yom Haatzmaut (Israeli independence Day) with Israeli treats and musical accompaniment by Florie Namir. Co-sponsored by the Jewish Arts Collaborative with the Israeli American Council and Jewish Book Council.
