Sarsar, born and raised in Jerusalem, is the author and editor of several works on the Middle East, as well as two books of poetry. The first, “Crosswinds,” includes impressions of a teenager experiencing Jerusalem under Jordanian and Israeli rule, and maturing in a land “between war and peace.”  The second, “Seven Gates of Jerusalem,” is a personal journey into the depth of dialogue, inclusion and peace.

The poems address overcoming adversity and the need for deliverance. Sarsar’s individual poems have appeared in a variety of venues, including The New York Times, Asbury Park Press, Mediterranean Poetry, Warscapes, and Monmouth Review.
