“The Hour of Sunlight fills an important void in our understanding of entrenched international conflicts by detailing the rare process whereby an extraordinary person develops deep empathy and compassion for an enemy, and then goes one step further to work on the ground to advance peace. “ —Peter Weinberger, United States Institute of Peace

And Reb Rachel adds: “This is an exciting opportunity for members of our community to hear a perspective on Israel and Palestine which we don’t usually encounter. I found Jen and Sami’s book to be eye-opening and thought-provoking. It isn’t always comfortable to read, but I think it’s an ultimately inspiring story of how one Palestinian man moved from radicalism to compassion and a deep desire for coexistence and peace.”
