Our Communal Conversation About Israel: How Open Is It and How Open Should It Be?

October 6, 2014 Newton Centre 0

In the aftermath of this summer’s escalation of terrorist violence and military operations in the Middle East, there is heightened tension within the Jewish community about our discourse on Israel and related issues. How open is our tent and who should be in or out as we discuss the unfolding events? How is the landscape of the Jewish conversation different today as compared to the recent past? Panelists include Jeremy Burton, executive director of the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Boston; Rabbi Jonah Steinberg, executive director of Harvard Hillel; and Rabbi Melissa Weintraub, a leader of the Jewish Council for Public Affairs’ national civility campaign. Moderated by Hebrew College President Daniel Lehmann.
