Ginger & Gentile: How a trip to Israel put me on a journey to learn a new language?

When Sarah went to Israel on one of Christian trips, she felt more connected to her Christianity. It was one of the reasons she decided to embark on her Hebrew journey. Join Sarah, my ginger British student from the SOAS Languages Centre, for an honest conversation about:

  • What's it like being a dyslexic and learning Hebrew?
  • How has the trip to Israel made her feel more Christian?
  • Is Christianity a Western religion?
  • Do religious trips to Israel promote pro Israeli views while avoiding the conflict?
  • What stands behind statements like "it's complicated" and "wait 10 years before having your political stance on Israel/Palestine".
  • How do people respond to you when you say you're English, and does British colonial history have anything to do with that?
