Michal Sherez Shilor – The Word on the Street – East, West, and Haredi Jerusalem

Michal Sherez Shilor, Founder & Chair, 0202 – Points of View from Jerusalem: Jerusalem is a city united and yet apart. It’s three main sectors – Palestinian East, Zionist Jewish West, and Ultraorthodox (Haredi) – all consider themselves proud Jerusalemites, but live in essentially three different Jerusalems. They speak different languages, learn in different educational systems, read different media, and follow different celebrities. Together, we’ll get a brief overview of life in East, West, and Haredi Jerusalem and then critically read public posts from each sector of the city to learn the intricacies of discourse on the very different streets of Jerusalem.
