This is from our friend and colleague, Vicki Marantz. Her nephew is Abraham Gutman, the Israeli co-founder of an ad hoc group called “Jews and Arabs Refuse to be Enemies.”
This is how he describes his activism:
I am an Israeli student at Hunter College pursuing a joint BA/MA in economics. I grew up in Tel Aviv; when I was 18, I volunteered with the Israeli Emergency Medical Services for two years instead of [being drafted] to the IDF. I am extremely passionate about human rights, poverty reduction, and the end of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
