Partnership Against the Odds: Can Israelis and Palestinians Create a Shared Story?
- This event has passed.
News coverage about Israelis, Palestinians, Jews, and Arabs is filled with narratives of right versus wrong, us versus them, and irreconcilable differences. What happens when instead of perpetuating a culture of blame, those on each side of the conflict come together and challenge themselves to listen and build? What’s easy, difficult, or impossible to accomplish in creating a shared story? What do you sacrifice and what might you gain? How might Palestinian citizens of Israel play a special role in forging these new connections?
We’ll explore challenges, opportunities, and outcomes through a conversation with activists and creatives involved in unlikely partnerships, including: Alon-Lee Green, the founding National Director of Standing Together, a progressive Jewish-Arab grassroots movement; Maisam Jaljuli, a longtime labor, feminist, and political activist, and a leader of Standing Together; and Tawfik Abu-Wael and Joseph Cedar, two of the co-creators of the new HBO series “Our Boys.” The conversation will be moderated by Rabbi Shira Stutman, the Senior Rabbi of Sixth & I.
No one will be turned away due to lack of funds. For more information, please contact our Religious Programming Associate, Leila.
Standing Together’s visit is made possible through support from the New Israel Fund.
