Please allow me to share with you a letter that I received from one of my students this summer from the course on Coexistence in The Middle East that I taught at the Hebrew University for international students.
Thank you. Thank you for an incredible month which has left an indelible mark on me. Your time, your experiences, your curiosity, your perspectives, the individuals and places we met and saw, the ideas we were exposed to- all of it amalgamated into a transcendent experience. I have never before felt so impassioned yet so disheartened, so intellectually charged yet directionless. I suppose that’s what happens when your curiosity ignites and never falters. Words simply cannot express just how appreciative I am for having had the privilege of sitting in your classroom. I am eternally grateful.
I hope my sentiments are transferred through my paper. I haven’t enjoyed writing something this much in quite some time. I also attached a photo essay I compiled as an addendum.
I am still thinking. I am still curious. I place a question mark at the end of every statement.
I wish you all the best.
She was a great student and I enjoyed teaching course once again.
I hope that those of you who have not yet read me book will decide to do so. Would love your feedback.
