It's Grim Up North

Robbie Gringras

Sunday 10:00 AM–11:15 AM Dutchess Canceled, sorry

Arts & Performance, Israel

The occupation/Jewish settlement of Judea and Samaria take up so much of our attention that it sometimes feels that Israel’s issues began in 1967. Up in the Misgav area of Israel, we have a feeling that the more thorny date is 1948. Robbie Gringras shares personal stories of the break-down of co-existence between Arabs and Jews: stories that challenge all we hold dear.
