Elayan Contributes “Jerusalem, My Father, and Me” to Anthology

Azzam Elayan, Ph.D., lecturer and coordinator for general education and natural science in the Department of Chemistry and Physics, authored the essay, “Jerusalem, My Father, and Me,” which was included in, “What Jerusalem Means to Us: Muslim Perspectives and Reflections,” an anthology co-edited by Professor Saliba Sarsar.

Elayan’s essay chronicles his first visit to Jerusalem as a youngster, in the company of his father, and his impressions of the city’s aromas, food, cobbled-stone streets, little spice and sweets shops, architecture, holy sites, and his father’s workplace.
