Pearls


URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/rob_eshman/article/pearls_20031003

I've been hearing a lot about Bernard Henri Levy's book, "Who Killed Daniel Pearl?" but I hadn't heard what Daniel Pearl's father thought of it. So I phoned him. I knew Judea Pearl would have an opinion, and would not shrink from expressing it. After suffering shock and grief that no parent can imagine, he and Daniel's mother, Ruth, found the strength to turn grief to good works, to make Daniel's legacy of tolerance and understanding manifest in a world increasingly hostile to both. Among those good works is The Daniel Pearl Foundation (danielpearl.org), which hosts a series of world music concerts as a way to use music as a bridge to cultural understanding.
