A Day in East Jerusalem for Jewish Communal Leaders

Join us for a day in East Jerusalem to hear from Palestinian resi­dents about their perspec­tives on this current moment in the city and its future. Participants will join a cohort of Jewish peers to listen to a diverse set of Palestinian speakers discuss crit­ical issues and see the reality of various East Jerusalem neigh­bor­hoods first­hand. Bring your most pressing ques­tions, a sense of curiosity and a will­ing­ness to engage across polit­ical differences.
