Join us to hear Guest Speaker Mark (Mordechai) Halawa for "Grandma Rowaida's Dark Secret: FROM KUWAIT TO JERUSALEM." Hear the story of Mark's fascinating journey. Born and raised in Kuwait to mixed Arab-Muslim and Jewish parents, Mark lived in several places in the Middle East before traveling abroad to study in Canada. It was there that he learned of his matrilineal Jewish roots, and subsequently moved to Israel. Mark has appeared on TV and his story has been shared by many media outlets. Currently, Mark is involved in various business projects in the Middle East, acting as a liaison for Israeli companies in the region as well as promoting shared values between Israel and Arabia, where favorable media about Israel is strictly forbidden.
