Fluent in Arabic, English, and Hebrew, with a unique understanding of Arab society and culture, Avi has his finger on the pulse of the Arab world. He helps people of all ages, backgrounds, and knowledge levels across the ideological and political spectrum connect the dots and gain a comprehensive and multidimensional picture of the Middle East reality, and its impact on Israel.
In his newest book, Inside The Middle East | Entering a New Era, he clearly and insightfully contextualizes regional events, helping the reader build a multidimensional picture of the Middle East. He also challenges common Western concepts, narratives, and theories.
Avi is currently spearheading ITME’s newest project – a five-part documentary series on Jerusalem. خط التماس | Kav Ha Tefer | קו התפר | The Seam Line scheduled to be released in May.
In the late 1980s and throughout the 1990s, the Arab-Israeli conflict exploded into the intifada - lethal and violent protests and riots throughout Israel. This was the most chaotic and dangerous period in the history of the modern city of Jerusalem.
Avi Melamed, a fourth-generation Jerusalemite Jew, former intelligence officer, fluent Arab speaker and Middle East expert, is the host of The Seam Line.
As the Advisor on Arab Affairs to two Mayors of Jerusalem during the intifada, his mission was to rebuild relations between the Arab and Jewish communities in Jerusalem. His work put him in the epicenter of this deadly storm.
The Seam Line is not a historical documentary.
It is an invitation to join Avi Melamed on an insider's journey throughout Jerusalem.
" In my role as ADVISOR on ARAB AFFAIRS to two mayors of Jerusalem.
I found myself at the forefront during one of the most complex and violent chapters in the history of Jerusalem.
My mission…to restore trust between the Arab residents of Jerusalem and the authorities.
It was a unique opportunity to act in a mission of hope in times of despair, in a city that is a part of me and I am a part of."
