We are pleased to share the "11 Books" list from our friends at World Literature Today. The list was compiled by the University of Oklahoma's Schusterman Center for Judaic and Israel Studies, which is directed by professor Alan Levenson, Schusterman/Josey Chair in Judaic History. We include here the introduction to the list.
"In the wake of the October 27 mass shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, the University of Oklahoma’s Schusterman Center for Judaic and Israel Studies sponsored a vigil on November 1 at the Hillel center on campus. In honor of the eleven victims of the massacre and those injured in the attack, the Schusterman Center has assembled the following list of eleven books to facilitate reflection, to promote tolerance, and to foster understanding. Each year, November 16 marks the International Day for Tolerance, based on the Declaration of Principles on Tolerance, which UNESCO adopted and proclaimed in 1995."
