Book Fair Event with Allan H. Goodman


Allan H. Goodman's intriguing blend of history and mystery, Father, Son, Stone, delves into the secret of Jerusalem's most controversial religious site: the Temple Mount, also known to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary. Inspired by Goodman's desire to learn why Moshe Dayan returned the Temple Mount to the Muslim authority at the end of the Six-Day War in 1967, the book spans various periods in the history of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, while engaging the reader in a page-turning tale that includes personal loss, religious and legal conflict, political ambition, and long-hidden family secrets.

Goodman is a judge, mediator, arbitrator and educator and has written two best-selling non-fiction books. He lived in Israel for two summers during college, working on kibbutzim and studying Hebrew. He majored in International Affairs at the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service, where his studies included Islamic History, Middle East Politics and Diplomacy, and Arabic. He also earned a law degree from the University of Toledo College of Law, and was in private practice before becoming a judge.

Co-hosted by the Jewish Women's Club
