Actor and photographer Gili Getz will perform “The Forbidden Conversation,” an autobiographical one-man performance exploring the difficulty of having a conversation about Israel in the American Jewish community. This event will take place on Thursday, February 9, at 7:00 pm in the Konover Auditorium at the Dodd Research Center and is made possible by the Center for Judaic Studies and Contemporary Jewish Life and UConn’s Middle East Studies Program. The performance is free and open to the public! In the Forbidden Conversation, Gili Getz presents a deeply personal one-man performance that is based on his own journey. The play will be followed by an open discussion about the challenging conversations we have with family, friends, and our community concerning the future of Israel, the American Jewish community, and ways to process fundamental differences and disagreements.
