Is Gideon Levy coming to a place near you this March? If so, go listen


Gideon Levy is a respected Israeli journalist who writes thoughtful opinion pieces for Ha’aretz, a leading Israeli daily. Some might compare him to the Globe and Mail’s Jeffrey Simpson or CBC’s Neil Macdonald. He loves Israel. But he is very worried about its future. His frank assessments have even lead to death threats from right wing Zionists. Let him tell you why he is concerned and what he sees for Israel’s future.

Levy will be coming to Canada in March, brought to us by Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East (CJPME).

His 8 day, 8 city tour will take him to Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Hamilton, Edmonton, Calgary, Victoria and Vancouver. His lecture will be entitled: ISRAELI ELECTIONS: WHAT NEXT FOR ISRAEL-PALESTINE?

He will give his first presentation in Montreal only 5 days after Israel’s March 17th elections.

CJPME is working with various local partners in different cities. In Ottawa, the event will take place on March 23rd in association with Independent Jewish Voices Canada, The Association of Palestinian Arab Canadians (APAC), and Palestinian Student Association – U. of Ottawa (PSA).
