Image - Petra, Jordan


Maher Kalaji, Ph.D.

Celia Menczel, Chair, Middle East Member-Led Forum

Jonathan Curiel, Journalist—Moderator

Jordan, a strong American ally, is one of the most historically and strategically important countries in the Middle East. It is also one of the most welcoming. However, tourists to Jordan were markedly fewer this March when Menczel toured Jordanian archeological sites, including Petra, one of the seven new wonders of the world. She will show images and discuss her enlightening and wonderful experience with Professor Kalaji, who was born and raised in Jordan.
