David Rubin is an author who's appeared on national TV and radio shows to talk about peace in Israel.  He's in Bend tomorrow night, Saturday,  at 7 pm at the "Sound Garden" near Searing Electric on 2nd Street. 

 

He moved from Brooklyn, New York, to Israel and became the mayor of a town of 8 thousand,  Shiloh, Israel. 

 

"Became the Mayor of Shiloh and then a couple of years after that- was driving home with my 3 year old son in his car seat and we were hit by a massive hail of bullets.  I was shot in the leg and my 3 year old son, was shot in the head, we miraculously survived...”

 

Because of his son’s, trauma, Rubin started a non-profit that helps children deal with post traumatic stress syndrome in that sometimes violent area.  He's also written several books.  His most recent is called "Peace for Peace: Israel in the New Middle East"".

 

He says there are a lot of misconceptions about Israel, the Arab Spring and other topics involving The Middle East.  He believes the media sometimes perpetuates the misinformation.

 

His talk is free and open to the public.  If you'd like to hear his conversation with 1110 KBND on Friday, March 15th, it's available on this website under the "Your Town" icon.
