Advisor and coordinator of the Hebrew Studies Program, is a Moroccanborn Jew raised in Israel. He writes and publishes poetry, prose, and research, and produces documentary films. Dr. Chetrit’s book, Intra-Jewish Conflict in Israel: White Jews, Black Jews, was published by Routledge, New York and London (2009). Other recent books by him are Yehudim (Jews), a poetry book released by Nahar Books, Israel (2008), and Ein Habuba (Doll’s Eye), a novel, Hargol- Am Oved Publishers, Israel (2007). A forthcoming book project is about the Mizrahi voice in Israeli poetry. In 2009 Chetrit finished his second documentary film, Azi Ayima (Come, Mother, Israel), about his mother’s classmates in Morocco 60 years ago. The film was selected for the 2009 DocAviv and Darom film festivals in Israel. His first film, which he wrote and co-directed, The Black Panthers (in Israel) Speak (Israel, 2003), is about the Israeli Mizrahi social uprising during the 1970s. It was selected to be shown at many festivals around the world. His next film project will explore the concept of Jewish statehood throughout Jewish history.
