Author and WashU alumnus Matt Adler discusses his new book, "More Than Just Hummus: A Gay Jew Discovers Israel in Arabic."
In his new book, Matt Adler explores the diversity of Arabic-speaking Israel from the perspective of a gay Jewish man. Using the language he learned in college, Matt visits Jewish, Muslim, Christian and Druze communities. His adventures include sharing his gay identity with a questioning teenager, hitchhiking on golf carts in a rural Druze village, and celebrating Shabbat—all in Arabic. The virtual talk will be moderated by Professor Younasse Tarbouni (Senior Lecturer in Arabic).
