This Land is Whose Land?

Saturday, September 19 at 11:15 am

On the first day of Rosh Hashanah, we read about our forbears’ Abraham and Sarah’s exile of Hagar and Ishmael, a story of what happens when you treat people as “other” rather than “us.” In a conversation with Rabbi Shira, Suketu Mehta will examine and wrestle with what we learn from this ancient text and how it connects to contemporary issues of global migration. Mehta is an Associate Professor of Journalism at New York University and author of This Land is Our Land: An Immigrant’s Manifesto.
