Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor
(Harper; 2018)

Lyrical and evocative, the New York Times bestseller Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor is one Israeli’s powerful attempt to reach beyond the wall that separates Israelis and Palestinians. In this taut and provocative book, Yossi Klein Halevi endeavors to untangle the ideological and emotional knot that has defined the conflict for nearly a century. Using history and personal experience as his guides, he unravels the complex strands of faith, pride, anger, and anguish he feels as a Jew living in Israel. Halevi’s letters speak not only to his anonymous Palestinian neighbor but to all concerned global citizens, helping us understand the painful choices confronting Israelis and Palestinians that will ultimately help determine the fate of the region. Halevi is a senior fellow of the Shalom Hartman Institute, where he co-directs the Muslim Leadership Initiative. His last book, Like Dreamers, won the 2013 Jewish Book Council’s Everett Book of the Year Award. He lives with his family in Jerusalem.
