Israeli-Palestinian Issues: Moving from Conflict to Commonalities

Part of the Talking Table, an interactive lecture series presented by Time Well Spent at the JCC East Bay.

clientuploads/directory/rotate/commom-photo-edited.jpg There are many different approaches to the Israeli-Palestinian issue. This presentation will highlight commonalities between the two peoples, in light of the presenters’ belief that lasting peace will only be possible when each side sees the other as equally human. Presentation includes Q & A.
