In this lecture, Jonathan Dobrer will provide you access into the North Africa, seldom seen by American Jews.
From Shabbat in Tunis with a marriage broker to crossing part of the Sahara on a camel with no name, Dobrer traveled openly as a Jew and accumulated remarkable experiences.
Join him to learn more about unexpected conversations and encounters, and how language shifts our perception of the world and one another, and, crucially, how language can open doors, hearts and minds.
