NECESSITY FOR INTRA-JEWISH DIALOGUE
PIN CONVENING HELD JAN. 30
This demonstrates what our organizations know to be true: a critical mass of American Jews are craving a vision for what’s next in the region. This is rooted in a goal of getting out from under the cycle of conflict management, a pernicious approach that has clearly failed. They see themselves as connected in some way to this land and this conflict, and acknowledge that they have a role to play. The speakers’ remarks centered around shared land and society, with an explicit acknowledgement that two peoples have a right to self-determination and claims to the land, and neither is going anywhere. Attendees were charged to think about what a shared society could look like, and imagine a new paradigm with equality and new governance for both peoples, moving beyond endless conflict and into imagining a future that works for all.This event demonstrated a clear need and a widely shared desire to continue this conversation, both within our network and organizations and beyond.
