“Strange Bedfellows: Can Settlers and Leftists Work Together for Peace?”
Can Israeli settlers and Israeli leftists find common ground and promote a solution that recognizes both Palestinian and Jewish national rights?
For the past several years, an organization of Israeli settlers and Palestinians in the West Bank has been meeting regularly to dialogue, promote nonviolence, and lay the foundations for reconciliation. The group – Roots/Judur/Shorashim – believes that human interaction based on respect, empathy, and recognizing the other side’s dignity and belonging to the entire land of Israel/Palestine can help break the political impasse.
But without a credible and defined political vision anchoring them, do such people-to-people efforts actually encourage a breakthrough? Or is true Israeli-Palestinian reconciliation impossible until political leaders reach an agreement that ends the occupation and the dominance of one side over the other?
With us to discuss this issue on Tuesday, July 23 at 11:30am EDT/8:30am PDT will be Rabbi Shaul David Judelman of Roots/Judur/Shorashim and Dr. Dahlia Scheindlin, a political consultant and an expert on Israeli-Palestinian conflict and peacemaking issues.
The conversation will be moderated by Gilad Halpern, host of The Tel Aviv Review podcast.
A Q&A will be included. Join us for this important webinar!
