HEBREW UNIVERSITY’S MONA KHOURY-KASSABRI ENGAGES AUDIENCE AT TORONTO EVENT

It was an honour to host Hebrew’s University Dr. Mona Khoury-Kassabri on Monday night as part of CFHU’s ongoing Toronto series, Israeli Trailblazers in Conversation. In an engaging Q & A with CFHU’s Robert Sarner, Mona told her powerful story of growing up in an impoverished, crime-riddled neighbourhood in Haifa and later becoming the first Israeli Arab woman to be appointed Dean of an Israeli university. She also addressed topical issues concerning Israel’s Arab minority.

Special thanks to Yael and Oz Cohen for kindly hosting the event in their beautiful home, and to Elliott Sylman for the photography. Don’t miss out on future CFHU events, by signing up for our newsletter or following us on Facebook.
