Intown Jewish Academy Presents Escape from Cairo
One Person’s Journey from Hate to Love
An Online Event with Hussein Aboubakr Mansour
Author & Human Rights Activist
Sunday, June 20 | 7:00 pm

Growing up in Cairo, Hussein Aboubakr Mansour was raised to hate Israel and the Jewish people, whom he was taught were the world’s “supervillains.”
But as he got older, he began to explore things for himself. He learned Hebrew and studied Israeli and Jewish culture. What he discovered would radically change his life. It would lead him to endure reprisals and persecutions, and ultimately, to advocate on behalf of his once sworn enemy.
