Invest in essential education for Jewish leadership. Through your support, we are cultivating a more informed and inclusive Jewish engagement on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Jewish communal leaders simply must recognize the need for us (right now!) to listen and learn, honor and engage, struggle and sit with all of these issues, narratives, experiences...for our sake collectively as a Jewish people, and specifically as American Jews.Lindsey B. Mintz Executive Director, Indianapolis JCRC
I have totally opened to a new perspective on the conflict, one that I thought I understood but I now realize that I did not.Rabbi David Schuck Rabbi, Beth El Synagogue Center
Incredibly eye-opening, educational. It offers Jewish communal leaders a unique opportunity to get unfiltered facts about the current conditions.Deborah Lauter Executive Director, NYC Office for the Prevention of Hate Crimes
Encounter's value is being one of a kind in creating a thoughtful, safe space [and a] responsible and diverse cohort of inspiring colleagues who can support each other in engaging the conflict in our communities. It offers Jewish leaders access to the voices we want to be talking to and with and about from the other side of the messiest, most personal global conflict we are in some way all a part of. It softens our ears and hearts even while dogmatically resisting specific political solutions or pat answers.Rabbi Steven Exler Senior Rabbi, Hebrew Institute of Riverdale
I thought I had a solid command on so many facts and figures and data points and narratives. This trip gave me more facts, data points and anecdotes and voices that offer different narratives… Being present for that testimony was a gift.Rabbi David Seth Kirshner Rabbi, Temple Emanu-El, Closter, New Jersey
