Yasmin Levy is an acclaimed Israeli artist known for her twist on Sephardic songs. The musical tradition came from her father who recorded and preserved folk songs in Ladino, a Judeo-Spanish language that emerged in the territories of the ancient Ottoman Empire after Jews were exiled from Spain in 1492.
Prizewinning Israeli author Yossi Klein Halevi will discuss the future relationship between American Jews and Israel, Wednesday, Nov. 8, at Duke University.
The talk begins at 6 p.m. in the David M. Rubenstein Rare Book and Manuscript Library on West Campus, and is free and open to the public. Parking is available in the Bryan Center garage and lot.

Duke graduate (Trinity '88, School of Medicine '93), Bobby Green, remembers his time at Duke. While completing his Certificate in Jewish Studies, Green had the opportunity to meet and introduce the late renowned Elie Wiesel, who gave the Rudnick lecture in 1987 in Page Auditorium.
Green recently posted this photo of him and Wiesel on Facebook, with a thank you to Professor Emeritus Eric Meyers for giving him such a great opportunity.
