Video documentation of the event:
"The American Jewish Community's Evolving Relationship with Israel"
At the Washington DC Community Center on December 8, 2013.
At a time when it is ever more important to expand and share the conversation about Israel, we are inspired to offer this panel discussion as a part of a new continuing series called Embracing Democracy: Who Has the Right to Speak for Israel? In these conversations we will bring into the light the strong emotions, conflicting opinions and different modes of expression of support for Israel. As America itself seems ever more polarized, we aim to use these discussions as a way to bridge the polarization that has beset the American Jewish community around Israel.
