The book selection is The Lemon Tree: an Arab, a Jew, and the Heart of the Middle East by Sandy Tolan.
In 1967, Bashir Al-Khayri, a Palestinian twenty-five-year-old, journeyed to Israel, with the goal of seeing the beloved old stone house, with the lemon tree behind it, that he and his family had fled nineteen years earlier. To his surprise when he found the house he was greeted by Dalia Ashkenazi Landau, a nineteen-year-old Israeli college student, whose family fled Europe following the Holocaust. On the stoop of the old stone house, Dalia and Bashir bean a rare friendship, forged in the aftermath of war and tested over the next 35 years in ways that neither could have imagined on that summer day in 1967. Sandy Tolan brings the Israeli-Palestinian conflict down to its most human level, suggesting that even amid the bleakest political realities; there exist stories of hope and reconciliation.
