"All land is holy. All people are chosen." --Alan Senauke

In 1989, I co-authored Seeing Double, A Middle Eastern Comedy of Error with Joan Holden and the San Francisco Mime Troupe. (Read the New York Times review.)


In 2016-2017, I worked with Sinai Peter, Hanna Eady, and Joan Holden on an update. Read about it.

From 2002 to 2009, I was on the Board of Jewish Voice for Peace, a diverse organization inspired by Jewish tradition to work for a just resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict based on human rights and international law.

In July 2007, I was interviewed about JVP for the Arab American News, a Detroit weekly.

One State or Two?, a JVP position paper I co-authored with Mitchell Plitnick (on JVP's Web site -- January 2007). Reprinted in June 2007 by Peacework, the publication of the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC).

My op ed in the San Jose Mercury News during the Israeli attack on Lebanon (August 2006), and some of the responses it generated.

A fund-raising letter I wrote for JVP (Fall 2005).

Excerpts from the program book of JVP's Olive Branch Awards Dinner, which I edited (May 2005).

An article I wrote for JVP's book Reframing Anti-Semitism (2003) about charges that were leveled at the anti-war movement during the buildup for the war on Iraq. (I co-edited the book.) In 2017, JVP published a much more substantial book on this topic.
