Gadi Taub, a celebrated Israeli novelist, historian, cultural critic, and professor at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, will bring his eclectic resume to bear on the talk “Tel Aviv: Between the Margins and the Center of Israeli Society.” Taub, who earned his Ph.D. from Rutgers, returns to the New Brunswick campus to explore Tel Aviv culture through the lens of his own best-selling debut novel, Allenby Street, which depicts the less familiar, gritty, more neglected parts of society in Tel Aviv.
