“I am not the judge but I am a witness: J’accuse. The war will live, it will be part of a living structure until someone is held accountable. Someone who knew.”
We are very excited to announce the second publication in our series Mondoweiss in Print: Reading Maimonides in Gaza, by Marilyn Garson.
Between 2011 and 2015, Marilyn Garson lived through two wars as she worked for Mercy Corps and UNRWA in Gaza. Reading Maimonides In Gaza is her incredible memoir of that tumultuous time.
An expanded 25-page version of Garson’s story Mondoweiss originally published online last March, the book includes exclusive new content and provides an intimate and harrowing look at the life-saving work aid organizations did in Gaza during two Israeli attacks. Mixed in with this reporting is Garson’s own process of coming to understand her connection to Judaism while under fire from Israeli warplanes.
A portion of the proceeds from every copy of Reading Maimonides In Gaza will go to support We Are Not Numbers, a Gaza-based project featuring news and essays written by Palestinian youth. You can learn more about their work at wearenotnumbers.org.
Reading Maimonides In Gaza joins Phil Weiss’s The World The Settlers Made as our two print publications, and we hope to be adding more in the coming year. Please be sure to check out our new web store to find all of our publications and t-shirts. Your purchase will help support news and analysis unavailable through the mainstream media regarding the struggle for Palestinian human rights.
