When Peace is Not Enough: How the Israeli Peace Camp Thinks about Religion, Nationalism, and Justice | Harvard Divinity School

Based on in-depth interviews with Jewish Palestine solidarity activists and a study of Jewish solidarity movements on social media, Atalia Omer demonstrates in When Peace is Not Enough: How the Israeli Peace Camp Thinks about Religion, Nationalism, and Justice how refiguring alternative Jewish meanings of rituals, practices, and texts may emerge through solidarity with Palestinians and from contesting Jewish nationalism and Israeli occupation policies.

Omer, who received a PhD from Harvard in 2008 and is currently Associate Professor of Religion, Conflict, and Peace Studies at the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies at the University of Notre Dame, will deliver the 2014 Dana McLean Greeley Lecture for Peace and Social Justice at Harvard Divinity School’s Center for the Study of World Religions on September 16, 5:15 pm, in Andover Hall on the HDS campus.
