The Dance of Faith and Doubt

Elif Shafak, Alice Shalvi and Rabbi Shoshana Boyd Gelfand

Elif Shafak – award-winning novelist, political scientist, women’s rights activist and a TED Global speaker – is the most widely read female writer in Turkey. Alice Shalvi, scholar, educator, women’s rights activist, seeker of justice and proponent of peace, is one of Israel’s most admired women. These two iconic women have much in common.

Together, Elif and Alice discuss their lives, their work, and their hopes with Rabbi Shoshana Boyd Gelfand.

Alice Shalvi’s memoir, Never a Native, was published in October 2018 by Halban Publishers.
