Lemon Tree


Friday, April 5, 2013
3 PM, Eppley Auditorium
Host: Dr. Moshe Gershovich

After moving into a house along the border between Israel and the West Bank, the home’s new resident – the Israeli defense minister – believes that a grove of lemon trees just across the border in the West Bank poses a threat to his security. The small orchard, which has been maintained by the same Palestinian family for many generations, becomes a bone of contention for the defense minister’s security forces who want to remove it.
