"Getting Real about Jerusalem" , the 26th Annual Amy Adina Schulman Memorial Lecture, will feature Daniel Seidmann, founder and director of Terrestrial Jerusalem, an NGO that monitors Israeli-Palestinian relations in Jerusalem. A retired Reserve Major in the Israel Defense Force, Seidmann is widely recognized in Israel and the international community as a foremost legal expert on contemporary geopolitics in Jerusalem. Seidemann will examine pressing issues which have shaped the trajectory of the current crisis in Jerusalem, the events that have triggered increasing rounds of terror and killings, and will suggest what could be done to contain this escalating conflict as well as possible steps towards healing, security, safety, and peace for Jerusalem. A question and answer session and a dessert reception will follow the lecture, which is free and open to the public.
The Amy Adina Schulman Memorial Fund, which sponsors the annual lectures was established in 1987. Amy Adina was born in Princeton and graduated from Princeton High School in 1983. After spending a gap year working on a kibbutz in Israel, she returned to her studies as a neuro-psychology major at Rutgers University. In 1986, shortly before her 21st birthday, Amy died suddenly from a brain aneurysm. In addition to the lecture, the Fund awards grants throughout the year to young adults who volunteer for progressive social action projects in Israel and around the world.
