A Young Man’s Journey To Peace: Discussion with Yahya Mahamid

Spielberg Chapel at United Hebrew
Co-sponsored with St. Louis Friends of Israel
Yahya Mahamid is an Israeli speaker, educator and activist. He serves as a mentor in various programs and works to empower, and integrate youth from Israel’s Arab minority into society. Yahya was raised in the city of Um Al Fahm and grew up with a negative image of Israel and the Jewish people, having been misinformed about the Arab-Israeli conflict. After meeting Israeli Jews, he chose to volunteer as a combat infantry soldier in the IDF – one of the few Israeli-Muslims to have done so. Yahya has since dedicated himself to educating others about anti-Semitism and misinformation about Israel.
