Sarah Mandel

Sarah Mandel grew up in the UK, studied at Oxford, Cambridge and Tel Aviv Universities and has lived in Israel since 2003. She works in academic editing and lives in Gush Etzion in the settlement of Ibei Hanachal with her husband and 6 children. She was first drawn to Roots when she realized that she needed to take active steps to ensure that her children, growing up in the Gush, would be as peace-oriented and open to difference as she was. She didn’t want to live with blinkers, ignoring her Palestinian neighbors, and she believes in the importance of humanizing the "enemy" in order to pave the way towards peace.
