The Middle East right now is a political powder keg that only seems to be getting worse. On top of that, the region is very fragile environmentally and one of the regions that will be most adversely affected by climate change. There are a few organizations working to convene Jews and Arabs in shared spaces to learn about and address these issues—together. Learn about the impact this engagement is having on the region, on the lives of the participants in these programs, and on the prospects for continued cooperation in challenging times.
