Biography

BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE

Lesly Lempert, an American citizen with ongoing connections to the Jewish community in Ithaca, New York and to several American-based organizations working on human rights in the Israeli-administered territories, collected a number of publications relating to Palestinian Arab concerns and human-rights issues during the term of the First Intifada. The time range is generally, with several exceptions, from about 1987 to about 1994, i.e. the duration of the Intifada and its political and humanitarian consequences. The material in this collection was compiled chiefly during Lesly Lempert's twelve-year tenure as Executive Director of the American-Israeli Civil Liberties Coalition.
