    Ever since seventeen-year-old Rachel Levy, an Israeli, was killed years ago in Jerusalem by a Palestinian suicide bomber, her mother Abigail has never found peace. Levy's killer was Ayat al-Akhras, also seventeen, a schoolgirl from a Palestinian refugee camp several miles away. The two young women looked unbelievably alike. To Die In Jerusalem unabashedly explores the Palestinian-Israeli conflict through the personal loss of two families, cluminating in an emotionally charged meeting between the mothers of the girls--reflecting the conflict as seen through their eyes. But some emotional chasms are too large to cross.
