Envisioning a "Jewish and Democratic State" That Promotes Peace

In Collaboration with the Foundation for Middle East Peace and Americans for Peace Now

The creation of Israel in 1948 and its unresolved conflict with the Palestinians, Israel's post-1967 occupation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem, and Israeli settlement and control of those territories have raised profound religious and political issues in Israel and Palestine, the Jewish Diaspora, and among Jews and non-Jews throughout the world.

Rabbi Arik Ascherman will discuss the the current situation and the religious dimensions of achieving peace, security, human rights and mutual respect between Israelis and Palestinians. He will describe his vision of what a Jewish and democratic state entails and how this should translate into mutually accepted policies of control and governance over land and people, freedom, and human rights on both sides of the Green Line.

Please join the New America Foundation's Middle East Task Force, the Foundation for Middle East Peace, and Americans for Peace Now for this conversation with Rabbi Ascherman on June 11.
