This Week in Palestine: “A Day in the Life”


This month, the Palestinian magazine This Week in Palestine offers its readers a glimpse into the day-to-day lives of Palestinians from all walks of life from a Bedouin and a working mother to a Harvard student and an acoustician. The articles in the issue introduce Palestinians we rarely see in the news. Some tell stories of overcoming struggles such as that of Nesma Al-Ghola, the first visually impaired woman to receive a master’s degree in Interpretation of Quran Sciences. Another article describes a day in the life of the fourth generation Palestinian-Chilean, Omar Salame. Yet another article introduces Madeline Kullab, Gaza’s youngest and only female fisher.

To spend a day with any of these Palestinians, read the August issue on This Week in Palestine’s website.
