Dr. Abigail Jacobson, a Middle East historian and Academic Director of the Mediterranean Neighbors unit at the Van Leer Jerusalem Institute, and Dr. Moshe Naor of the department of Israel Studies at the University of Haifa, discuss their co-authored book Oriental Neighbors: Middle Eastern Jews and Arabs in Mandatory Palestine, which explores the interaction – at times cooperative and at others confrontational – between Arabs and Jews of Middle Eastern descent in British-ruled Palestine.
This season of the Tel Aviv Review is made possible by The Van Leer Jerusalem Institute, which promotes humanistic, democratic, and liberal values in the social discourse in Israel. [/infobox]
