Galeet Dardashti returns to Paradigms to share her new project Monajat wherein Galeet brings together her love of music, her work as an anthropologist, and her celebration of her grandfather Younes Dardashti who was a famous Persian Jewish singer.
In this time of polarization and conflict in the region called “The Middle East” with more horrific violence perpetrated by extremists, Jews and Arabs, let us keep in mind that most of those who have been killed since the October 7 attack by Hamas, have been Palestinian children, killed by the Israel Defense Forces.
There was a time, not so long ago, when Arabs and Jews lived side by side without conflict, in community. What will it take to return to peaceful coexistence?
