I SHALL NOT HATE; A THEATRICAL PRESENTATION AND DISCUSSION

By Event Guest, Washington Jewish Week
 
The new Mosaic Theater Company of DC is producing I Shall Not Hate based on the memoir of Dr. Izzeldin Abuelaish. Mosaic and the Gildenhorn Institute for Israel Studies are presenting Dr. Abuelaish at the University of Maryland, along with the Palestinian-Israeli actor who portrays him, Gassan Abbas. Abbas will perform excerpts from the play, which tells the story in Gaza and Israel of the extreme challenges facing this man, his family, and his wrenching quest to live and achieve in both societies.
 
Abbas and Dr. Abuelaish will be joined for the discussion with the audience by Yoram Peri, Director of the Gildenhorn Institute for Israel Studies and GIIS journalist-in-residence Shlomi Eldar. At the time of Operation Cast Lead, Eldar was an Israeli TV journalist who took the on-air call that seared the conscience of a nation as his friend Izzeldin sought help from the Israeli missile strike that hit his family home with tragic consequences. They will speak together of life across the boundaries of this conflict.
