Walk of the Land by Udi Goren

World-renowned as one of the world's best, toughest, and most beautiful long-distance hikes, the trail stretches 700 miles from Israel's Lebanese border up north all the way past Eilat in the south, close to Israel's border with Egypt. Udi is the first professional photographer to have walked and documented the trail in its entirety. 'Through the trail and through my own story, I tell the story of Israel," says Goren. The program includes breath taking photographs of Israel's people, national monuments, mountains, creeks, and landscapes." RSVP to templeadathy@comcast.net.

World Affairs Council of NH's Global Forum Featuring Masha Gessen

5 PM, SNHU Dining Center, 2500 N. River Road, Manchester

Join the World Affairs Council of NH for the annual Global Forum featuring Masha Gessen, a Russian and American journalist, who is the author of the bestselling book, The Man Without a Face: The Unlikely Rise of Vladimir Putin. An outspoken activist, Masha undergoes great risk to write truthfully about human rights violations, gender, and LGBTQ issues, and the current cultural and political climate in Russia. There is simply no one else brave enough to tell her astonishing story. Most recently, Gessen authored: Where the Jews Aren't: The Sad and Absurd Story of Birobidzhan, Russia's Jewish Autonomous Region. The previously untold story of an area once declared a Jewish homeland, Where the Jews Aren't reveals the complex, strange, and heart-wrenching account of the dream of Birobidzhan—and the true history of Jewish people in twentieth-century Russia. Gessen also wrote Two Babushkas about her Russian-Jewish grandmothers. Cost: $50/Council Members; $60/Not-yet-members Tickets: www.wacnh.org or 314-7970
