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.
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
The trip forever colors your understanding of the security of Israel… It deepens your knowledge and exposure no matter how much you've read.Angie Atkins Director of Heritage Alumni, Wexner Foundation
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
It's essential for Jewish leaders.Rabbi Sharon Brous Senior/Founding Rabbi, IKAR
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
