- The Test of War in Gaza: Who We Are and What’s next in the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict
7:30 PM – 8:30 PM Event on Thu 9/4/2014
Moderator: Tamara Wittes, Director, Brookings Center for Middle East Policy
Panelists: Jeremy Ben-Ami, President, J Street; Naomi Paiss, Vice-President, Public Affairs, Israel Fund; and Rabbi Shira Stutman, 6th and I Historic Synagogue
In recent weeks the world has been shaken by the intensity of the latest war in Gaza. As American Jews, we mourn for the sacrifices and fear for the safety of our friends and family in Israel. We also acknowledge and mourn the devastating loss of Palestinian civilian life in Gaza.
J Street and the New Israel Fund are organizations that work to achieve security, democracy, and peace for Israelis and Palestinians. Our mission in this challenging time is to transform our personal investment in both peoples into actions that address the underlying causes of this conflict.
Leading representatives of our organizations will discuss what’s happening on the ground and the values they bring to this work in a time of such turmoil and anger.
We stand challenged: how do we cope with and address the anguish of Israelis and Palestinians? How do we continue to move forward with renewed focus on the fundamental human and political issues that led to, and are emerging from, this tragic war?
The event will take place in the Abramson Recital Hall in Katzen
