It has been 50 years since the Six-Day War and the capture of territory that Israel occupies to this day.
On June 22, we’ll engage two Israelis who are keeping Israel’s occupation of the West Bank on the public agenda. Join former Shin Bet security service director and navy commander Maj. Gen. (res.) Ami Ayalon, well known for his testimony in The Gatekeepers, as well as Rabbi Arik Ascherman, founder of Rabbis for Human Rights and Haqel: Jews and Arabs in Defense of Human Rights. With their extensive firsthand knowledge of the impact of the occupation on Israeli and Arab society, they will share with us their experience and knowledge and their vision for an Israel that embodies the highest Jewish and democratic values.
Conflicts do end. Come hear from committed veteran Israelis shaping the public discourse on the conflict and the way forward.
