Bernard Avishai, Kashua, Web cast, Peter Edelman

NIF spring & yom haatzmaut
On New Israel Fund’s Yom Haatzmaut season line up: instigator Bernard Avishai, satirist Sayed Kashua, NIF’s first International Town Hall web cast, and a benefit dinner celebrating out going NIF chairman Peter Edelman, featuring Seymour Hersch Calvin Trillin of The New Yorker and friends.
I highly have to recommend Sayed Kashua — writer and producer for the Israeli sitcom Arab Labor, Haaretz columnist, and author of two books of great Israeli fiction — at the JCC in Manhattan on May 16. A full Shabbat dinner, a little irreverent humor about being brown and Israeli, and the folks of New Israel Fund’s New Generations plus the JCC’s Other Israel Festival. RSVP here, $36 $28. A sample of Sayed’s satire posted here.
