Painting for Justice

Miguel Levy is a mosaic: a physicist who loves to paint, an atheist who honors his Jewish heritage while harboring a deep sympathy for the Palestinian cause.
“For a long time, I’ve been interested in questions relating to the struggles of people for their rights, and my Jewish background leads me to be sympathetic with people who are being discriminated against,” says the Michigan Tech professor. “The Jewish people have been victims of racism over the ages, so it’s just shocking to me that with that background, Israel is committing so many injustices against Palestinians.”
