Stereotypes and misunderstandings of others often come from a lack of communication and/or source materials that have their own built in bias. How Jews and Arabs and Jews and Muslim perceive one another is just one example of this.
Jerry Sorkin, a former Or Shalom member, has been traveling throughout the Middle East and North Africa for more than three decades, and living in the Arab world the last six years. His travels are constant throughout the region, including Iran. His activities have involved tourism, organizing special delegations, serving as a consultant to organizations such as The World Bank and the European Union and simply the joy of travel. Jerry has moved back to Philly as of 2016 and shares with us his impressions of what it has been like living and traveling in these regions as an American Jew. Jerry earned his undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of Pennsylvania and speaks several languages, including Arabic. For more than two decades, he operated his Main Line store, J.M SORKIN, where in addition to selling Oriental rugs and furniture from around the world, he frequently held public forums or concerts that brought to the public..political speakers and musicians from the Middle East and North Africa.
In December 2015, Conde Nast Traveler magazine named Jerry for the sixth time one of their “Top Travel Specialists”. He returned to Philadelphia this past January to take on the position of Director of Marketing and Product Development for the Gil Travel Group.
