The Letters Project: Conversing Across Narratives

Partnership with the Jewish Community Relations Council and Talmud Torah of Minneapolis

A course for high school students based on Yossi Klein Halevi’s book Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor: with an Extensive Epilogue of Palestinian Responses. Each week, class will be taught by a different Rabbi or Community Leader from across the Twin Cities. This course will culminate in each student writing a letter of their own, which they will have the opportunity to enter into a national contest.

A $180 stipend is available to all students upon successful completion of the course and all course requirements. This class and student stipends are made available by the Louis Herman Memorial Fund of the Minnesota Jewish Community Foundation. 

This project is sponsored by JCRC and supported by a grant from an Anonymous Fund of The Minneapolis Federation.
