19-year-old Syrian refugee Farsana is stuck. Once the top student in her school, she’s now educating girls while they wait for the war to end. But when an older Jordanian doctor offers Farsana an education in exchange for marriage, she takes the chance –and finds herself embroiled in her new husband’s bizarre plot to redeem himself. Mia McCullough’s Wisdom From Everything is the story of one young woman trying to better herself in an atrocious reality. Is there hope?
Followed by a panel about refugees and resettlement from Jewish academic and organizational perspectives.
