Encounter staff are experts in the field of conflict trans­for­ma­tion, partic­u­larly between Jews and Palestinians, facil­i­tating conver­sa­tions across polit­ical and reli­gious divides. Encounter has also piloted resources enabling educa­tors to thought­fully address hard topics in Israel educa­tion for varying Jewish educa­tional institutions. 

Our staff are avail­able to speak at confer­ences, work­shops and other community-wide events and to facil­i­tate discus­sions for commu­nity insti­tu­tions espe­cially those wrestling with how to approach the topic of Israel and the conflict.
