Would you like to have a constructive, respectful conversation with people whose views about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict are different from yours? Are you interested in talking about your experiences, feelings, convictions, and questions in an environment that promotes mutual learning?
The Jewish Dialogue Group invites Jews of all perspectives and backgrounds to our upcoming introductory dialogue sessions.
Where: We are currently planning dialogues in Philadelphia, New York, and Boston.
When: The dialogues will take place on Sundays or weekday evenings. The times of the dialogues will depend on the availablity of those who are interested. Each session will last two hours.
Who: These gatherings will give you an opportunity to talk with other Jews who have strong feelings about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and related issues, including both people who are like-minded and people whose perspectives may be very different from your own. The dialogues will be useful to you whether you feel certain about your views or you feel more ambivalent or confused.
What: You will have the chance to:
- Share your perspective on Israel and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict
- Learn about perspectives different from your own
- Reflect on your own experiences, feelings, ideas, and questions
- Hear about resources you can use to foster constructive dialogue in your own synagogue, school, organization, or community, as well as opportunities to take part in additional JDG programs
