About the Program
Jen Marlowe talks about former Palestinian militant Sami Al Jundi, who, after a bomb he and his friends were building exploded prematurely, was imprisoned by the Israelis. Following a ten year stint in prison, Al Jundi co-founded Seeds of Peace Center for Coexistence in Jerusalem, an organization that brings together Israeli and Palestinian youth in an effort to bridge the divide between the two societies. Ms. Marlowe spoke at an event hosted by Writers & Books in Rochester, New York.
