I didn't learn any substantial new facts or yet-unknown perspectives about the conflict. But I was pressed to confront the urgency of... and the untenability of my own blind spots.Rabbi Jeremy Kalmanofsky Rabbi, Ansche Chesed
The value [of the program] is massive. The exposure to different points of view and its very organized well thought out meaningful way is very powerful and life-changing.Rabbi Jessica Spitalnic Brockman Associate Rabbi, Temple Beth El, Boca Raton
I feel much more informed, have (some) first hand understanding and a better grasp on where to go to learn more. This is now an open and discussable topic.Rabbi Tully Harcsztark Head of School, SAR High School
It's a powerful and necessary experience.Lindsey B. Mintz Executive Director, Indianapolis JCRC
The Encounter experience was such a powerful reminder of the importance of face-to-face interaction. After listening to and learning from actual Palestinian human beings, it’s impossible to revert to grand pronouncements about ‘the Palestinians’ as an undifferentiated, homogenous collective: They’re just as complex, multi-dimensional, thoughtful, and fallible as the rest of us. What a gift to be reminded of that elusive truth in this era of insidious generalizations.Aaron Dorfman President, Lippman Kanfer Foundation for Living Torah
