12pm EST Tuesday, 08/11: A Conversation on a Shared Homeland
On Tuesday, August 11th, at 12 PM eastern, Jewish Currents and the Foundation for Middle East Peace (FMEP) will co-host a livestreamed discussion of what a shared Israeli-Palestinian homeland would actually look like.
Moderated by Jewish Currents Editor-at-Large Peter Beinart, this event will feature Sari Nusseibeh, a Palestinian academic and former activist; Meron Rapoport, an Israeli journalist; and Dr. Limor Yehuda, an Israeli legal scholar.
This event is co-sponsored by FMEP, which was created in 1979 by Merle Thorpe, Jr., a Washington-based lawyer and philanthropist, to promote a just resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The Foundation advances this goal through its grants program, public programming, and research.
