Ms. Adelfang will talk about how the book came to be, read excerpts, touch on recent events and discuss what Americans, Jewish and non-Jewish, can do to promote peace, justice and democracy in Israel/Palestine. She will then answer questions and sign first-editions of the book. This event is being sponsored by Rochester-based interfaith group, Faith to Faith.

Praise for Shifting Sands:
“[The writers] powerfully articulate, in their different ways, the axiom of our common humanity. It may have taken our whole life to reach that place (as one contributor put it), but those who are finally able to see, must stand up and advocate for sanity now, today.”
(Deb Reich, translator, Abu Ghosh, Israel/Palestine)
“From the opening pages about a … prayer on doubt, through each and every one of the personal accounts, readers feel the wisdom of women on every page, as well as a deep sense of love for humanity—all humanity.”
(Sam Bahour, Co-Editor of Homeland: Oral Histories of Palestine and Palestinians)
