Guest Speaker: Aryeh Green

Love, Loss & Healing in the Holy Land

Wednesday, May 23, 7:00PM

A book talk by Aryeh Green on his newly released book, My Israel Trail: Finding Peace in the Promised Land. 

After his devastating divorce, which rocked his world and confounded his deeply-held optimism, Aryeh Green’s goal was to get his life back on track.  His hike along The Israel National Trail (Shvil Yisrael) enabled the discovery of a number of universal truths for living based on Jewish tradition. 

In a uniquely moving, fascinating and uplifting talk, based on his book My Israel Trail: Finding peace in the Promised Land, Aryeh invites you to join him on his trek, as he shares with you both a new perspective on Israel – the land, the country, its history and people – and illuminating insights from the experience.  Accompanied by photos and videos. 

 

Aryeh Green is the author of the just-published My Israel Trail: Finding Peace in the Promised Land about his hike on “Shvil Yisrael”, the 600-mile Israel National Trail from Dan to Eilat.  He serves as chief strategy officer at EnergiyaGlobal, a renewable energy platform for Africa, and as director emeritus of MediaCentral in Jerusalem, a project of HonestReporting providing services for the foreign press in the region. Aryeh is a former senior advisor to Natan Sharansky in Israel's prime minister's office, and is a frequent and captivating speaker on Israel, media issues, and human rights. When not promoting Israel and renewable energy, Aryeh grows grapes and makes wine.
