The Israel We Rarely See: An Anthropologist’s Window onto the Lives of Migrant Workers in South Tel Aviv
Why should American Jews care about migrant workers in Israel? In this talk, anthropologist Sarah Willen, Associate Professor of Anthropology at UConn, will share insights from the field research she has conducted since 2000 with Filipino and West African migrant workers in Israel — and with Israeli migrant advocates who have rallied in support of migrants and their families.
