An Evening in East Jerusalem for Jewish Communal Leaders

While many of us are inti­mately familiar with West Jerusalem, few of us are as familiar with East Jerusalem, just blocks away. Join us for an evening program on Thursday, December 3rd to hear from Palestinian resi­dents about their perspec­tives on the city’s future.

The program includes Palestinian speakers with rele­vant expe­ri­ence who will speak about crucial topics including the changes in the E-1 area, educa­tion, citi­zen­ship and resi­dency, access and move­ment, and more. The program provides oppor­tu­ni­ties for our partic­i­pants to probe deeply and ask ques­tions of our Palestinian speakers, along with space to engage in crit­ical thinking among a diverse group of Jewish leaders.
