Chicago,Shifting Sands: Jewish Women Confront the Israeli Occupation

Join Editor Osie Gabriel Adelfang and contributor Emma Rosenthal for a reading and discussion of this groundbreaking anthology.

The first collection of its kind, Shifting Sands presents the personal essays, eyewitness accounts, and intense soul searching of fourteen Jewish women writers confronting the reality of Israel as a brutal occupying force. In the Jewish community, criticizing the Israeli government's handling of the Palestinian question often labels the critic as self-hating and anti-Semitic, yet the contributors to this anthology write out of love, a shared humanity, and a vision for a lasting and just peace.
