BEING JEWISH - A DIFFERENT VIEW
An evening of politics, music and literature
with Reuven Moskovitz [Israel]
Reuven Moskovitz, a renowned and controversial Israeli author and peace activist will read his own and foreign texts, present his autobiographical book and set some musical accents.
Dr. Reuven Moskovitz was born in 1928 in the Schtetl Frumsiaca in the northern part of Romania. In spite of persecution and expulsion, he survived the Holocaust and immigrated to Palestine in 1947, where he became a co-founder of the Kibbutz Misgav-Am situated on the Lebanese border. After studying history and Hebrew literature at the University of Tel Aviv and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, he taught history.
For almost 40 years, he has been warning against the danger of escalating terror and counter-terror in the Middle East. He founded or co-founded several organisations in Israel which are doing practical peace work up to this day. So he is for example a co-founder of the peace village Neve Shalom / Wahat al Salam in Israel founded in 1972, where he also lived. Israeli Jews and Palestinians are living together with equal rights in this village, where they have a bilingual primary school (Hebrew and Arabic are equally spoken as official languages) and a peace school, where young Jewish and Palestinian Israelis often meet for the first time and use their joint seminar work for learning and practicing how to peacefully live together.
