COFFEE & CONVERSATION: Arabic as a Cultural Bridge
Edlavitch DCJCC

Join us for brunch with May Arow, the Abraham Initiatives Director of Language Programs, to experience how the power of language can open the door to understanding culture and society in Israel. During this program, we’ll enjoy Middle Eastern pastries and coffee while May will give us a taste of the introductory Arabic courses she runs for Israeli newsrooms, mayors and city council members, academic staff on Israeli campuses, and other key Israeli institutions. Participants will learn enough Arabic vocabulary to break the ice at the shuk and gain a new perspective on Arab society in Israel.

11:00-11:30: Coffee, Pastries, and Schmoozing
11:30-12:30: Presentation

Free to attend, but please RSVP on the next page so we know how many to expect!
