Visions Lecture Series Lecture with Amal Abusif Congregation Sons of Israel 300 North Broadway, Upper Nyack, NY 10960 Amal Abusif is an award-winning teacher in the Haifa School System and co-existence activist. She is (to the best of our knowledge) the first Arab, Muslim, woman ever to hold a senior staff position in a program of Jewish education. She is the Education Director for Kivunim New Directions, a Gap Year Program in Israel. She holds a BA and MA in education from Haifa University and is currently a Phd student at Ben Gurion University. She is stopping over at CSI only three days before she has been asked to speak at the United Nations. She will be speaking about Building peace through knowledge: The Israeli-Palestinian case Is It Possible In this time? The Visions Lecture Series is made possible thanks to a generous grant from the Jewish Federation of Rockland County
