The spring season of live events in English in The Times of Israel Presents series has something for everyone.

On Tuesday, April 25, Jerusalem writers Haim Watzman (“Necessary Stories”) and Matti Friedman (“Pumpkinflowers”) will discuss their work in our monthly series Personal Pages: Meet the Authors, at the Tower of David. Tickets NIS 50, available HERE.

Jewish Agency Chairman Natan Sharansky, the Russian-born ex-minister and former Prisoner of Zion, will speak with Matthew Kalman at Beit Shmuel on Sunday, May 7, about his life, work and the major issues facing Israel and the Jewish people. He will also sign copies of his books, which will be on sale at the event. This event is co-produced with Nefesh B’Nefesh. Advance tickets NIS 50, available HERE.

On Monday, May 15, our guests for Personal Pages: Meet the Authors at the Tower of David are Anne-Marie O’Connor (“Lady in Gold”) and Ora Ahimeir (“Bride”). O’Connor is ending a temporary sojourn writing and reporting from Jerusalem, while Ahimeir is a long-time fixture in the city’s diplomatic and literary scene. Advance tickets NIS 50 available HERE.

Nitsana Darshan-Leitner’s latest target is Palestinian Olympic Committee and Fatah Central Committee Chairman Jibril Rajoub. Her lawsuit accuses Rajoub of being responsible for the death of a Palestinian-American allegedly tortured to death in 1995 after being arrested by security forces under Rajoub’s command. She will discuss her multi-million-dollar legal cases against terror suspects and their financiers at Beit Shmuel on Sunday, June 4. This event is co-produced with Nefesh B’Nefesh. Advance tickets NIS 50, available HERE.
