"Moving and Powerful" White Zion


It means a lot to me when readers send me their thoughts on White Zion. Thank you, Terri!

I read White Zion recently and want to share how moving and powerful it was for me. It's wonderful to hear stories about Jews from MENA and how they are viewed in both Israel and Canada. I understand this is important to you from reading an interview online. I'm in agreement that hearing these stories is so important in our Ashkenazi-centered Jewish world (especially in North America). The stories about the women in "The Wedding" and "I Put Him on the Bottle" were also really poignant, interesting, and so beautifully written. 

Thanks again for sharing White Zion with HBI. 

All the best,
Terri
