Former Slug Gershom Gorenberg to Speak in S.C.

I received word from the Jewish Studies department that on this Tuesday evening, April 4th, UCSC Alumnus Gershom Gorenberg will be speaking on his new book The Accidental Empire: Israel and the Birth of the Settlements, 1967-1977. "Critical, but sympathetic, this book shows why support for Israel is not the same as support for the settlement enterprise."

Our student-run Jewish newspaper, the Leviathan, will be sponsoring a special intimate dinner and discussion with Gershom at 6:30pm in Kresge Seminar Room 159, followed the main lecture at 7:30pm, also in Kresge Seminar Room 159.

Gershom is currently the Jerusalem correspondent for the Forward. A lengthy interview with him is available here, and some of his works are available here.

The event is sponsored by Hillel, The Center for Justice, Tolerance and Community, and the Jewish Studies Program.
