Rabbi Michael Lerner at Alameda Forum on Jan. 14

Alameda Public Affairs Forum will host a discussion with Rabbi Michael Lerner at 7:45 p.m., Saturday, January 14, at the Alameda Main Library.

According to the group, Lerner is “one of the most challenging thinkers of our time” and has just published a book on the Middle East: “Embracing Israel/Palestine: A Strategy to Heal and Transform the Middle East.”

In the book, he addresses the roots of the threat of a war against Iran by Israel and the United States, and proposes a strategy to reconcile Israelis and Palestinians as essential first step toward transforming the Middle East.

Copies of Lerner’s new book will be on sale at the event courtesy of Books Inc., and Lerner will autograph them.
