Mark Braverman to Discuss Israel, Palestinian Conflict


Psychologist, author and director for Kairos USA, Mark Braverman, will deliver the Mattingly Visiting Scholar Lecture at Nebraska Wesleyan University on Tuesday, November 4.

His lecture, “Israel, the Palestinians, and the Failure of Global Diplomacy — the Emerging Grassroots Movement for a Just and Lasting Peace,” begins at noon in Prairie Wolf A & B, located on the lower level of the Story Student Center.

Since his retirement from his work as a clinical psychologist, Braverman has devoted his time to writing, speaking and working toward justice for the Palestinians. He now serves as executive director of Kairos USA, a movement of U.S. Christians who believe the time is right for decisive action to end the crisis in Israel and Palestine.

He is the author of two books, “A Wall, Hope, Healing and the Struggle for Justice in Israel and Palestine” (2013) and “Fatal Embrace: Christians, Jews and the search for Peace in the Holy Land,” (2010).

His lecture is free and open to the public.

Named for Dr. E.L. Mattingly, professor emeritus of religion, the annual Mattingly Visiting Distinguished Scholar Series brings to campus scholars in the fields of religion and theology.
