Please join us for an intimate conversation with acclaimed Israeli author Etgar Keret and GTU Jewish Studies Professor Deena Aranoff. They will discuss Keret’s most recent writing and film projects, his approach to storytelling and to the world, his penchant for the absurd, and more.
ETGAR KERET is an internationally acclaimed Israeli writer and filmmaker. Known for his short stories and books, Keret fuses the bizarre with the banal, and offers a window on a surreal world that is both dark and comic. In his memoir, The Seven Good Years, he contemplates moments of his life against a backdrop of constant conflict, casting an absurd light on both the monumental and mundane.
DEENA ARANOFF is faculty director of the Richard S. Dinner Center for Jewish Studies at the Graduate Theological Union, Berkeley. She teaches rabbinic literature, medieval Jewish thought, and the broader question of continuity and change in Jewish history.
