A Perspective on Reconciliation

Publication Date July 2014

Publisher Palgrave Macmillan

This book is the result of many years of the author's thinking, speaking, and writing about peace. It is the fruit of many years of philanthropic activity in the Middle East Peace Network (MEPN), which the author founded in 1990. To a certain degree, it is a personal journey of a Jew into the heart of Islam in search of a common ground and possible Jewish-Muslim reconciliation. The purpose of Where Islam and Judaism Join Together: A Perspective on Reconciliation is to create an environment that could help reshape the future of Jewish-Muslim relations, and consequently shift the context of the Arab-Israeli conflict.

Shai Har-El is a historian, educator, writer, rabbi, and businessman. He is founder and president of Middle East Peace Network (MEPN), and the author of Struggle for Domination in the Middle East: The Ottoman-Mamluk War, 1485-1491 (1995).
