DIALOGUE OF CIVILIZATIONS: ISRAEL AND PALESTINE
STUDENT SPOTLIGHT: Noah Lapidus
When Noah Lapidus was in the fifth grade, his teacher asked the class to produce a family tree. Already curious about his family’s origins, the 11-year old started filling in the branches of Lapiduses and Weinsteins who were pillars of the Jewish community in his hometown of Birmingham, AL.
FACULTY SPOTLIGHT: Jonathan Kaufman
Jonathan Kaufman’s career as a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter and editor for such illustrious publications as The Boston Globe, The Wall Street Journal, and Bloomberg News has taken him around the world, covering racism and job discrimination in Boston, political, economic, and social issues in Beijing, and the breakdown of Communism in Berlin.
