Class of the Month: Hebrew Authors

A Sequoia Hadassah Event with Professor Edna Aphek

Professor Edna Aphek will discuss Savion Liebrecht’s story, “Hayuta’s Engagement Party.” The story focuses on the conflict between the generations in Israel: that of the grandfather who keeps living the horrors of the past (HaShoa) and his granddaughter who wants to lead a “normal life” and ignore the past. The conflict reaches a climax at the granddaughter’s engagement party.

Professor Aphek is a linguist, lecturer, and researcher in Hebrew language, Literature and Israeli Culture.

RSVP to Leah and to receive PDF copies of the stories.

$15 Donation to Hadassah.
