Profile Information

My personal story:
Change of heart happened to me. For 12 years I attended a parochial Zionist Jewish day school. I grew up speaking Hebrew and talking Middle East politics. Until recently, I held the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as a fixed reality, suspended in forever as an intransigent status quo slaughter of innocents. I spent much of my senior year studying the Israeli-Palestinian conflict from the perspectives of both sides, hoping my research would culminate into some uplifting initiative. Through this project of understanding, I began learning — and through a grueling process of checking my very myopic assumptions, I came to know my Palestinian brethren.
After a summer in the West Bank, I am involved in two grassroots movements, Roots/Shorashim/Judur and Taghyeer (Change).
Why I want peace:
I speak through peace; its sign defines my outlook. Rooted in common, humanity. A circle with branches, all connected. This I obsess. Promoting peace and the sanctity of humanity is my muse, I am a poet.
Interests and activities:
Jewish texts and philosophy
Interfaith community organizing
Nature walks
Something you didn't know about me:
I identify as an Arab Jew
Favorite website:

What I want to achieve here:
