Welcome to lifelong learning.

Across the Divide


Too much bickering, too little listening. That’s today’s conversation about Israel.

This series is designed to change that reality by bringing together prominent voices from along the political, denominational and generational spectrums. Has Israel become just another pawn in the Washington political game? Can we bridge our religious divisions to speak in a single voice about Israel’s future? How can we develop common ground between older Jews, who grew up with one vision of Israel, and younger Jews, who have entirely different experiences?

Whether you’re a Democrat frustrated with Republican policies or a Republican convinced the Democrats don’t support Israel, an Orthodox Jew committed to settlements or a secular Jew who abhors them, a parent who can’t mention Israel to your children or a younger person convinced your parents don’t have a clue – or none of the above – please cross the divide with us.

Part I: The Generational Divide:

Examining the Past, Present and Future of Israel Engagement, featuring influential voices of the upcoming generation, including:

  • Yair Rosenberg, Senior Writer, Tablet Magazine
  • Batya Ungar-Sargon, Opinion Editor, the Forward
  • Bari Weiss, Op-Ed Writer and Editor, the New York Times

The next two parts of the series will occur in the Winter/Spring semester.

In partnership with the Israel Policy Forum and the Anti-Defamation League.
