In 2021 the executive editor of the Jerusalem Quarterly (JQ) invited Dorit Naaman, Marina Parisinou and Mona Hajjar Halaby to co-author an essay for the journal. The Jerusalem Quarterly, published since 1998 by the Institute for Palestine Studies, is “the leading journal on the past, present, and future of Jerusalem. It documents the current status of the city and its predicament.”Read more
“In My Mother’s Footsteps: A Palestinian Refugree Returns Home” is the title of a new memoir by Mona Hajjar Halaby, published today by Thread Books.
Mona is one of the key collaborators of Jerusalem, We Are Here. We are thrilled for this new accomplishment of hers, offer our warm congratulations – and look forward to reading her book.Read more
We are excited to introduce this new informational website to supplement the main Jerusalem, We Are Here project website. It will serve as our main platform for all project-related information. (We will continue to cross-post on Facebook.)
More importantly, this website will host our blog – a space to represent all our voices and a vehicle for continuing to tell the story of Palestinian Jerusalem. We hope that these voices will include not only those of our team members but also some of the many contributors to this project as well as other guests’.
We invite you to take a few moments to browse the site. You will find details on how the project came to be and who made it happen by contributing in different ways, big and small (About); how the project has been received in the media and in academia, and the awards it has earned (News); where it has been screened so far and is scheduled to be presented in the future (Events); and a slew of resources (books, articles, films and websites/social media pages) we recommend that relate to the subject (Resources).
If you would like to be notified of new events and blog posts, please use the Subscription form at the bottom of the page to sign up for email updates.
We look forward to continuing the conversation!
