In a career spanning almost half a century, Amos Oz has shone a light of rare compassion, wisdom and passion. A bestselling novelist, essayist and journalist, and a prominent advocate of a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Oz’s work has been published in more than forty languages, and he has been recognized with many international awards including the Israel Prize, the Goethe Prize and the Frankfurt Peace Prize. Oz returns to the JCCSF to discuss Judas – his first major work since A Tale of Love and Darkness – an exquisite love story, and an allegory for the state of Israel and for the biblical tale from which it draws its title.
"Patient, cogent and an exquisite thinker, Oz is a rare blast of sanity and intelligence. Read, learn and take heart."
